We will then make our way to St Hilarion Castle which Walt Disney Castle shape was inspired from. The view from the castle is absolutely magical!

After that, we’ll take you to see the beautiful Kyrenia Castle and the Shipwreck Museum in the harbour.

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia, is home to the harbour city of Kyrenia and some of the most amazing sites in Cyprus. Although many holiday makers may be forgiven for thinking that Kyrenia is just a harbour town, there really is a lot more to see and do. Filled with historical buildings, superb scenery, spectacular natural un-spoilt sandy beaches, and much more, Kyrenia makes the perfect destination for any holiday.

The calming atmosphere of this beautiful sea-front city makes holidaying in Kyrenia a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. The old town of Kyrenia is filled with whitewashed buildings and the ruins of walls and towers that once protected this city from attack. Whilst the city of Kyrenia may seem quite and asleep during the day, once the sun sets the atmosphere is transformed as restaurant and tavern owners prepare for the night and the entertainment it brings.

Northern Cyprus Nicosia

Northern Cyprus Nicosia

Ledra Street is in the middle of the walled city. The street has historically been the busiest shopping street of the capital and adjacent streets lead to the most lively part of the old city with narrow streets, boutiques, bars and art-cafés. The street today is a historic monument on its own. It is about 1 km (0.6 mi) long and connects the south and north parts of the old city. During the EOKA struggle that ran from 1955–1959, the street acquired the informal nickname The Murder Mile in reference to the frequent targeting of the British colonialists by nationalist fighters along its course.[13][14] In 1963, during the outbreak of hostilities between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, following the announcement of amendments to the Cypriot Constitution, Turkish Cypriots withdrew to the northern part of Nicosia which became one of the many Turkish Cypriot enclaves which existed throughout the island. Various streets which ran between the northern and southern part of the city, including Ledra Street, were blockaded. During the Turkish army invasion of Cyprus in 1974, Turkish troops occupied northern Nicosia (as well as the northern part of Cyprus). A buffer zone was established across the island along the ceasefire line to separate the northern Turkish controlled part of the island, and the south. The buffer zone runs through Ledra Street. After many failed attempts on reaching agreement between the two communities, Ledra Street was reopened on 3 April 2008.
