“Time to move on”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

If ever they get rid of this and learn compromise the island would truly flourish, the crossing is a small step but the sculpture needs to go.

“The other side”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

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 back over they will be confiscated, so wear whatever it is, to have any chance of getting it across

“Ledra Street”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Really worth a visit to see how the Green Line was drawn across the city. It is hard to imagine a capital city being divided into two halves and for nearly thirty five years the one side could not visit the other side.

“Greatly smartened up in recent times.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

First time we saw this it was from an observation point and looked across 'No Man's Land'. Extremely sad. Now it has been greatly tidied up, but it is still sobering to think that Nicosia is a divided city after 40 years. The world seems to have forgotten this. A few years ago we crossed over for an evening meal and returned when it was dark. This was an incredible experience. We crossed from the 'Occupied Zone' which is bleak and poorly-lit - through the border - and then into smartly-lit and 'buzzing' Greek Cypriot Ledra Street.
