Northern Cyprus - the jewel of the Med: Lefkosa [Nicosia] dating back to the 7th century, visit Ledra Palace, or take a stroll through the streets where you will be thrilled to find old farmers markets with amazing produce, particularly interesting is the Buyuk Han [the great inn] built in 1572 by the Otterman governor mustapha Pasha,,, traders and merchants would stay the night, drink wine and make merriment. Just around the corner is the mansion of dervish pasha built in the 19th century and bears the characteristics of the Turkish architecture of this period. Other places of interest in this city are the Venetian Column, Gamblers Inn and the Kyrenia gate.just recently in the centre they have just opened up the border crossing from north to south ,its a walkway which allows you to spend the day on the Greek side.its good to observe the cultural differences between the two zones, there is a noticeable difference also between the two cuisines...make sure you don't miss the very old central market [Turk side] its an eye opener
Kyrenia, a 14th Century uncomercialised harbour: Dating back to Roman times, was eventually taken over by the Ottermans in 1571 without them firing a single shot. But enough of all the Nostalia, the horseshoe shaped harbour which is filled with old and antique Turkish fishing boats is truly a delight .the low romantic lighting needs to be appreciated at dusk or night, it boasts scores of restaurants, bars cafe's most with outside waterfront dinning but go to the back streets and fined some real jewels. A deal cheaper and perhaps more interesting. Its really very safe in spite of the narrow darkly lit cobbled streets. be prepaid for the wailing of the Imrans from the several mosques which are located in the area calling the believers to prayer Also in the harbour is Kyrenia Castle built by the Byzantines in the 7th century to protect the city from Arab raiders. it has apparently remained intact for centuries but has also been enlarged & better fortified over the last few hundred years.. there are a couple of authentic turkish bars too.
Beaches and relaxiation: Well, there is an area east of Kyrenia known as the Karpaz. Literally mile after mile of golden beaches, turtle breeding grounds actually. wild donkeys ,also. Sea is sparkling aquamarine, and there are some incredibly basic hotels literally on the beach 'the oasis' for one that will cost about £15 per room per night. The owner cooks out on the patio under the stars, a real experience. Nearer the apartment area are some glorious beaches. Camelot, Escape the Sun Set beach club etc. Everything will be available at really affordable prices when it comes to wining and dining northern Cyprus is unsurpassed .how about 3 course including wine for about for under £20 per head [exchange rate permitting] there is a famous meze restaurant (cenap)which will serve you a 24 course meal for about £12 per head. Strong brandy sour cocktails will run you back about £3. North Cyprus is a really good deal ,it is NON EURO and less expensive than anywhere I have been recently, please come visit you wont be disappointed.
