Nicosia (or Lefkosia) is the capital of Cyprus, a status it has enjoyed for 1000 years, though its beginnings date back 5000 years to the Bronze Age. It lies roughly in the centre of the island in the Mesaoria Plain, flanked by the beautiful northern range of Pentadaktylos.

Seat of Government, Diplomatic headquarters and cultural centre of Cyprus, the capital presents two distinct faces: the old, original part of the city, surrounded by sturdy Venetian walls over 400 years old, and a busy modern metropolis which has a population of 350,000 including the surrounding metropolitan area.

Within the large area encircled by the strong bastion walls that served to protect the town for centuries, are many places of great historic interest. The central Eleftheria Square links old Nicosia with the elegant modern city that has grown up outside the walls, where hotels, offices, restaurants and gardens blend happily with the fine old houses and colonial buildings of this cosmopolitan city.
