Very basic.... not sure I would say this is 'a must'.... however, it makes you realise what the Greek Cypriots went through and are indeed still going through. Old press cuttings (many duplicated), makes you wonder how this could've happened and is still, 40 yrs...More

Looking at a town which has been left derelict and abandoned due to political circumstances is so sad and I do not recommend it. I am a bit biased towards this review considering I was born in this town!!!
