Situated just inland from the coast, Nicosia is the largest city and the capital of Cyprus. A synthesis of intense commercial activity and rich cultural events create an environment where tradition and contemporary sophistication harmoniously coexist. The options for eateries and shops in Nicosia is limitless, with the city’s renowned Ledra Street and modern shopping centres leaving residents overwhelmed by choice. High-rise luxury apartments and cutting-edge offices in the CBD enhance this cosmopolitan feel, making it no surprise that Nicosia has been ranked in the top ten small European Cities of the Future for the fifth consecutive year. The Financial Times also ranked Nicosia first in Europe for human capital and lifestyle.
However, running parallel to this modernity is a unique culture and history. The locals embrace heritage and tradition, seamlessly blending the two faces of this distinguished city.
