Top Local Tips for Nicosia

Beware of the traffic! I like Nicosia, but you have to be very careful when walking around the centre, as drivers in Cyprus are very bad. They often go through lights (not that some intersections in Nicosia have them anyway), and there is a very high rate of pedestrians being knocked over. It is also difficult to walk along streets, as some have no footpaths, and, even if they do, there may be cars parked on them so that you have to step on the road to continue. If you want to go for a long walk, the Athalassa Forest Park near Nicosia is a good place to walk safely.

Amazed by the Ease of Crossing Into the Turkish Side Because I was in meetings all day, I had to cross into the Turkish side of the city at night. It was amazingly easy. We walked down Ledra street. The Greek Cypriots said they would see us upon our return. The Turks were in business uniforms and entered our details in their computers. Boom, we were in. Overall, it's just fascinating to see this side of Europe's last divided city. To the east of the crossing, there is a church that the crusaders built that is now a mosque. It was very clean and well-lighted -- every where was, really. To the west of that crossing you have great views of the old 16th Century [I think] Venetian walls of the city. Plus, you can see the abandoned UN observation posts. The Turks seemed a little shy but every one was friendly. We never felt threatened nor did we feel any animosity. We [two guys, one US, one Indian] spent two hours on the Turkish side at night and found it to be fascinating. Coming out was equally smooth.
