The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) is a partially recognized state on the northern and northeastern side of the island of Cyprus. Turkey is currently the only state which recognizes the TRNC. Cyprus itself is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, where lies at the crossroads of Europe, Western Asia and Africa at the crux of the busy shipping and air routes linking the three continents. After Sicily and Sardinia, Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The cozy island with a postcard appearance welcomes you not only in summer but also in winter. Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which hosts a combination of sea, nature and history, can be visited all year round.



Nicosia is the last capital in the world to still be divided militarily, and the Green Line at Ledra will intrigue visitors who want to know what it’s like to cross a city checkpoint in the 21st century. On both sides of the divide there’s a lot to see, like the Selimiye Mosque, a hybrid of Christian and Islamic architecture, or the Cyprus Museum, the premier collection of ancient artefacts on the island.


Girne/Kyrenia is a coastal city and, arguably, at the heart of the North Cyprus tourism industry. Photos of its harbour and castle are often used in tourism brochures. Both inside and outside the city limits are a number of great hotels, making the city and area surrounding it a great base for exploring the rest of the island territory.


Famagusta, a small commercial port, is located to the east of the island. The town, which has the only deep water port in the country, is among the most strengthened ports in the Mediterranean. The Dungeon of Namik Kemal, the Palace of Venice, St. Nicholas Cathedral, Othello Castle, Salamis Antique City, Golden Beach, Icon Museum and St. Barnabas Monastery are the most important sightseeing spots of the town. The distance between Nicosia and Famagusta is approximately 80 km.
