Places of Interest Around South Nicosia,

South Cyprus

Although this web site is essentially information about North Cyprus, we have included places of interest for South Nicosia. The reason is simply that Nicosia is a compact city, and crossing between North and South is easier than it ever has been. You will need to remember a few things however.

You will be effectively crossing between two countries, so you will need your passport. There is unrestricted access between the North and South by EU passport holders, but much less so by other nationalities, particularly if your point of entry to the island was in the North. Turkish Lira is not acceptable in the South. Neither can it be changed at the banks. However Euros are readily available at the change shops in the North before you cross over without any restrictions. It is also worth pointing out that most shops, offices and public buildings are closed from around 3pm on Saturday and all day Sunday.
