Interesting and thought provoking statue and I admit to some ignorance of the history of Cyprus. But I have many misgivings as the Greek Cypriots seem to have a totally one sided view of history. Many countries in the British Empire managed to gain independence...More

This is an easy sight and a must for tourists in Nicosia! It symbolizes the freedom from the British. Real life statues.

The monument is a bit further away from the centre of the main sites in south Nicosia, although it is easy to get to. Worth a visit if you are around the area, you also get a good view of the medieval walls near this...More

An amazing monument with a great history and absolutely fantastic details. Very well kept and not too far from the city center where if you go exploring you'll find many more :D

The monument was erected in 1973 to commemorate the anti-british struggle during 1955-59, leading up to Independence in 1960. The symbolism of a gate opening to let prisoners out is quite clear. However, some on-site interpretation in English and other languages would have been helpful.

Important for local history although leaving out the Turkish Cypriots in the monument is rather unfair. Still it is good to remember how hard it was to gain independence,

This is a monument erected near the Famagusta gate. Due to the fact that it is newer, after the city has been split, you have something to take pictures of, unlike older monuments in the area. It is a short distance from several museums on...More

Another erection, that could have been treated with some more attitude, than just dropped between the walls. I even didn't see a sighn what it reffers to.

This statue is above the Venetian Walls of Nicosia. It symbols the liberation of Cypriot people through out the centuries, but mainly from the Great Britain in 1960. But in 1974 Turkey invade Cyprus killing in cold blood, plunder, raping and forcing 200,000 people live...More
