DescriptionNicosia, the last divided capital of Europe, is a city of contrasts. The old and the new blend together with the old city within the Venetian walls and the new modern cosmopolitan part. Depart Paphos and drive East, mainly along the coast, to reach the capital and its interesting sights. Your first visit, next to the Archbishop's Palace, is to the Cathedral of St John's, which is famous for its frescoes. Spend free time to get lunch or go shopping in Laiki Yitonia, which is a replica of an old neighborhood with cobbled streets and traditional tavernas, shops, and kafenions. If you are lucky, you can see the local people creating traditional artifacts like Lefkaritika embroidery, pottery, and local delicacies. Continue your tour and cross the green line dividing the capital to the occupied Northern part. Visit the Selimiye Mosque, historically known as the Cathedral of Saint Sophia, which is a former Roman Catholic Cathedral converted into a mosque. Then, head to the Büyük Han (Great Inn), which is the largest caravansary in Cyprus and is considered to be one of the finest buildings here.
