    There are many cafes, restaurants and clubs in Nicosia. The clubs tend to get very crowded during the weekend. Two nice clubs there are the "Zoo" and the "Taj Mahal". Keep in mind that many clubs there are mostly for teenagers, so it's not going to be fun for you if you end up in a club like that. Something else kind annoying is that you may need to wait at the door for a while. You can also try to go to the "City Pride" which is a bar that turns into a club late at night.

    the many archaeological and antiquities sites scattered around the island, dating from the New Stone Age through to the Roman Empire

    the beautiful coastline of the island - still quite unspoilt in many places - is well worth exploring

    Nicosia, the capital as it has a wealth of history, preserved Venetian walls surrounding the city, some wonderful bars and restaurants within the old walls of the city and of course the 'green line' - the dividing line with the Turkish part of Cyprus, which cuts through the centre of Nicosia, now the only divided capital in the world apart from Jerusalem

    the Troodos mountains, rising as high as 3,000 metres, offering some beautiful trail walks and also quaint little villages such as Platres and Phini. In winter there is the chance to ski there and the ski resort is being developed

    Hamam Omeriye, CyprusHamam Omerye in Nicosia, Cyprus is a 14th Century building restored to operate once again as a hammam for all to enjoy, relax and rejuvinate - it is indeed a place to rest. Dating back to French rule and located in the heart of Nicosia's old town is Hamam Omerye - a true working example of Cyprus' rich culture and diversity, stone struggle, yet sense of freedom and flexibility. The site's history dates back to the 14th century, when it stood as an Augustinian church of St. Mary. Stone-built, with small domes, it is chronologically placed at around the time of Frankish and Venetian rule, approximately the same time that the city acquired its Venetian Walls. In 1571, Mustapha Pasha converted the church into a mosque, believing that this particular spot is where the prophet Omer rested during his visit to Lefkosia. Most of the original building was destroyed by Ottoman artillery, although the door of the main entrance still belongs to the 14th century Lusignan building, whilst remains of a later Renaissance phase can be seen at the north-eastern side of the monument. In 2003, the [EU] funded a bi-communal UNDP/UNOPS project, "Partnership for the Future", in collaboration with Nicosia Municipality and Nicosia Master Plan, to restore the Hamam OmeryeBath, revitalising its spirit and sustaining its historical essence. The hamam is still in use today and after its recent restoration project, it has become a favourite place for relaxation in Lefkosia. In 2006 it received the Europa Nostra prize for the Conservation of Architectural Heritage.~
