Famagusta (Northern Cyprus)
Turkish side of Cyprus
On the way to Nicosia, we will make a short stop at Hirokitiya Station, where you can relax and have a cup of coffee. Continuing our journey, we will cross the "Green Line" (passport control). The next stop will be the monastery of the apostle Barnabas, built in the 5th century AD. Here is the burial place of the most sacred (tomb), and the monastery is now transformed into a museum of icons and archeological artefacts.
The next stop is the ruins of the largest ancient city of Cyprus - Salamina, which was erected in the 12th century BC. This ancient city for two millennia was the most important political and commercial center of the island. Next, we will go to the city of Famagusta, which was founded by the Egyptian king Ptolemy II, in the III century BC. On the way to Paphos we will pass through the suburbs of Famagusta, the "ghost town" - Varosha, where you can see the abandoned houses and hotels that were abandoned by residents during the military conflict of 1974, as well as the magnificent but deserted beaches of Cyprus.
