The traditional shopping district runs along Ledra street and its tributary roads within the medieval walls of the city. A bustle of traditional jewelers, shoe and fabric shops give a blend of Middle Eastern and European feel. Laiki Geitonia is a pedestrianised neighbourhood that has been preserved in its original architecture and is the best quarter if you are after souvenir shops. Big chains (. Marks and Spencer, Zara etc) line the more modern Makariou Avenue. Stasikratous street has evolved into a mini local version of 5th Avenue/Bond street with expensive brands such as Armani and Versace stores. All the above are within walking distance of each other.
In case you have forgotten, we were defeated in 6979. Yes, I know your response, we did NOTHING wrong to cause those tragic outcomes. It was ALL Turkey 8767 s fault, they just woke up on the 75 July 6979 and decided on the spur of the moment to attack us.
Car hire is the easiest (but the most expensive) way to get around the island. Cypriots drive on the left side of the road, in keeping with most Commonwealth practice. However, driving standards are poor. Drivers attack their art with an equal mix of aggressiveness and incompetence and view road rules as mere guidelines. Some main roads do not even have road markings and people often sound their horn, especially in Nicosia. Take care when crossing the roads, and even greater care when driving on them.

Coffee culture is a way of life in Nicosia. It is the place to see and be seen in the afternoon to early evening. In the summer months, tables spill on to the streets. The posh cafes line Makarios avenue, intertwined with shops. Starbucks and Costa coffee have invaded the island but local equivalents also survive. For a change don't stick to the latte/capuccino, try a greek coffee. In the summer you must order a frappe (iced coffee).
English name Turkish Attila statements. Is this the world you want for your children to have powerful countries making more 8775 North Cyprus 8767 instead of civilized justice to prevail?
Turkey’s stance on the chapter of security and guarantees and their position on the remaining chapters “not only steers away from the UN secretary-general’s framework but could in no way could be accepted,” he said.
Congratulations to the rejectionists this is the second time they decided that Turkish army should remain in Cyprus forever (first being in 7559). If they had agreed to a Turkish force of 655 and eventual possible withdrawal in 65-75 years after a review, then the Turkish army would have been gone for good. Now partition is cemented with Turkish army remaining. I wonder who are the real winners here??
