Streets are one of the most important elements that keep a culture alive. Of course, this situation does not change in Cyprus either; The joyful and cheerful mood of the island people is also reflected on the streets. Therefore, one of the must-do activities in Cyprus, the pearl of the Mediterranean, is to wander the streets of Cyprus.
You will encounter a different story at every step and you will come across the traces of all civilizations that have set foot in Cyprus as you wander through the streets that are full with scent of jasmines. You can enjoy Kyrenia with its streets opening to the Mediterranean sea, and visit the Ancient Sunken Ship Museum in the historical Kyrenia Castle, which is intertwined with the harbor. While visiting Famagusta Kaleiçi, you can experience the authentic Cypriot texture to the fullest and visit the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque (St. Nicholas Cathedral), one of the most beautiful examples of Rayonnant Gothic architecture, where the kings of Jerusalem were crowned centuries ago. Don't forget to rest in the shade of the 720-year-old ancient sycamore fig tree, the oldest living being on the island, located in the courtyard of the mosque.
Whether you want to stroll the magnificent streets of the Nicosia streets or enjoy the citrus scents in the green streets of Morphou; One of the unchanging sights you will see in every street of Cyprus will be the Cypriots sitting on their chairs and chatting. You will learn the story of the Beşparmak Mountains and many other Cypriot legends in the conversations blended with the sincerity of the island people, especially while weeding Molehiya in front of the door in the summer season.
How beautifully said our famous composer Kamran Aziz;
“Is Cyprus an island?
Is it a piece of heaven?"
Cyprus awaits you with its historical texture and authentic streets!
