Nicosia is the Capital City of North Cyprus, and is the only divided capital in the world. Split between both the Turkish and Greek side of the island. Places of interest in Nicosia are the Selimiye Mosque, The Great Inn and the Grand Bazaar. The Turkish side is still quaint, with it’s cobbled streets and small local shops.
