LEFKOSIA (NICOSIA) WALKS > Get to know the capital by walking
Within the framework of wider efforts to get foreign visitors better acquainted with the old city within the walls, the Lefkosia (Nicosia) Municipality from 1987 established a series of thematic walking tours. These tours have been reorganised to present various new aspects of the old city as well as the city outside the walls. A city like Lefkosia (Nicosia) with its 5000 yearlong history has much to offer. By walking, one gets a better feel for a place and its yearlong atmosphere, then and now, and a better understanding of its continual cultural development. This is the philosophy upon which these walking tours of Lefkosia (Nicosia) are based.
