Nicosia Municipality

Civil Weddings

Nicosia is the capital city of Cyprus and has a rich history of 1,000 years.

Nicosia, the capital city of the island, has a history of 1,000 years and it has today become a modern city that combines culture and modernity. Surrounded by the Venetian Walls, that were erected in the 16th century by Venetian conquerors, the heart of the city - the Old Nicosia - features museums, ancient churches and temples, neo-classic buildings, narrow streets that encompass the romantic feel of an ancient city of the past.

Its rich past has also some scars still visible by the occupation of half of the city by Turkish forces but residents remain hopeful that a resolution of that will soon be achieved.

Nicosia is the centre of Cyprus with all major Government Offices, Financial Institutions Headquarters and an abundance of large, medium and small businesses. Outside the Venetian Walls, a modern city has sprung with a cosmopolitan feel of a modern European City, while constant investment in large projects by the Nicosia Municipality make the future even brighter.
