Cyprus Museum

Reviewed By JohnV248 - Bognor Regis, United Kingdom

There is so much in this museum and it is so well presented, including narratives on the exhibits. Fortunately, the museum is not swamped with visitors so you have plenty of time to absorb what you are seeing and to spend time by your favourite items - I particularly liked their own version of the terracotta army (a lot more variety in their characters).

Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia

Reviewed By peter1107a - Sydney, Australia

This museum - located in the old part of Nicosia - is a great way to learn about the history of Nicosia itself - going back thousands of years to more recent times. The museum has an excellent collection which is enhanced by well produced interactives and virtual tours. Best of all it is free. A must see.

Kykkos Monastery (Panagia tou Kykkou)

founded in the 12th century, the monastery is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and contains many precious icons and relics.

Reviewed By Ingver_76 - Riga, Latvia

We were really lucky because there are no people these times travelling around and we were not more than 5 in the church and monastery. You should read the history of this place and I can say only one thing - the icon is very “strong” when I have approached it I instantly felt tears, it is amazing. 2020 years people are praying to this holy mother. This is strong. One thing to add - to get there is pretty tough- more then 50 km on serpentine road, it is a real challenge
