The independence of the unrecognized Republic of Northern Cyprus was proclaimed in 1983. The capital of Northern Cyprus, which is home to more than three hundred thousand people, is the city of Nicosia.
Rest in this part of the island will give vacationers an indescribable feeling. There are no large crowds of tourists here, as it happens in the southern part of the island, however, you will not be bored during your vacation. You can go scuba diving, paragliding, play paintball or take exciting walks in the mountains. The tourist development of Northern Cyprus began about ten years ago. Unfortunately, domestic tour operators do not sell tours to the northern part of the island, so you will have to book a hotel yourself and purchase air tickets. By the way, you will have to fly with a transfer through Istanbul. The advantage of a holiday in the northern part of the island is the low cost of a holiday in comparison with the resorts of southern Cyprus.
The authorities of the unrecognized republic are making great efforts to develop tourism business in the region. Numerous hotel complexes are being built on the coast, which offer the highest level of service to vacationers. During the holidays, tourists can make fascinating excursions to the numerous attractions of the island.
I am going on a trip, it should be borne in mind that you will not be able to get to southern Cyprus or Greece with the presence of the border service of Northern Cyprus in your passport. Therefore, it is advisable to ask local border guards to put a mark on a separate sheet.
