Bus service from Kirni to Nicosia, or Lefkosa (called so by local Turkish Cypriot population). Nicosia is the capital and the largest city of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It is situated at 35°10' north, 33°21' east, which is in the centre of the island, in Mesaoria plain. This geographical position has defined the destiny of Lefkosa as the economic, political, and cultural centre of the island. Nicosia hosts the main government headquarters and foreign representatives. It is also the seat for the United Nations and the European Commission offices.
Lefkoşa, despite of being a relatively small town, unifies people from different countries. Its population is around 84,900 people (according to 2006 census). The majority is comprised from local Cypriots and Turks who have been emigrating here from the mainland after 1974 events.
Lefkoşa is currently the only divided capital city in the world, with the northern (Turkish) and southern (Greek) parts divided by the "green line", a demilitarized zone maintained by the United Nations.
Perhaps you wanted to say "bullshit!". Maybe you're right, and if you give your version, I will be happy to have it on my page.
Thank you htsolakoglu, I appreciated your explanation. In fact I went to Cyprus 2 times just before the 1974 war and I do not know his reasons. The first comment is copied from wikipedia.
