It's nice to cross the border to see how time has stood still , and interesting to see bullet holes in the buildings as you cross to the other side, be warned if you buy any of the fake goods and try to walk them...More

A big note that this is Ledra's street crossing point. It is NOT a border. Boarders divide countries. Cyprus is country on its whole, with its northern part being occupied by the Turkish troops since 1974 when Turkey invated to Cyprus.

If you carry a valid passport or ID card, it is very easy to cross from the Greek to the Turkish part of Nicosia at Ledra Street. Minimum of formalities, and no pressure of any kind. Well worth the experience, sad that a formal crossing...More

The streets around still have concrete barricades as reminders of the war of 74. Ledra street is the only pedestrian-only border crossing point between North and South Cyprus. It is a real international border between two countries and formalities must be observed as at any...More

Its incredibly easy to cross between the borders and on both sides there is nothing to be alarmed by as a tourist. The checks take no more than a few minutes and when you look at the street both sides look pretty identical and you...More

If you want to see UN peacekeepers with blue berets, experience the reality of the world's only divided capital city and see the Northern side of Nicosia then this is the way to do it. Our children were fascinated by walking through "no man's land"...More

Crossing from Greek Cyprus into Tukish north Nicosia. The Turkish invasion in 1974 seized Northern Cyprus which remains under Turkish control (illegally).UN troops still maintain the border which separates the two factions.

Be aware that on the Greek side there are no sign posts to help find the crossing. There may be a short delay processing through Turkish customs but no more than a few minutes. Some great little cafés, bars & restaurants offering choice, good value...More

interesting question... the border patrol on both sides read the passport automatically, so they might have access to previous data.
