After holidaying in Cyprus since 1993 and not having visited Nicosia for the last 8 years we were wondering around looking for the green line and the divided wall guarded by the Soldiers for several hours. Even after seeing this particular attraction we still continued looking until I went to the tourist information office and the guy in the shop opposite explained. I was astounded that you could cross over after all these years. Unfortunately not knowing this we hadn't got our passports which we were extremely disappointed about and had to make do with the viewing in Debenhams on the 11th floor (well worth a visit just for the view of all over Nicosia) We are considering travelling to Nicosia again in the next few days just so we can experience the Northern side but will see once we've entered from the Famagusta area.

We visited Nicosia and were amazed and interested to see the Green Line and how it divides the city. Crossing into the north of the city is also an interesting experience including a visit to a mosque which had been converted from a Christian cathedral. Half a day in Nicosia was not enough.

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.

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

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.
