Чем вы займетесь

Welcome to Nicosia!

There is a story for everything, and I have heard quite a few. I am an educator by training and passion and what I love to do is share these stories with new friends.

We will start at Ledra Palace hotel and move along the buffer zone passing Paphos gate, the Catholic church, Castelliotissa, the Maronite Church, Phaneromeni Church, Chrysaliniotissa and Ledra street. Unless restricted by COVID measures, we will cross to the other side of the buffer zone and see Nicosia as a whole, passing by Buyuk Han, St.Sophia Cathedral and Arabahmet mosque.

The magnificent Venetian fortification walls, historic buildings, churches, mosques and fascinating architecture will captivate you. And during these moments, I will share stories of historic facts and anecdotes; explain cultural practices and share my knowledge on this island's collective memory as well as its collective amnesia.

My academic background is in the area of Peace and Conflict Studies. Moving along the buffer zone of this divided capital city, you can expect to have an array of emotions from witnessing the remnants of the stalemate conflict. I will point to the things you would have missed and try my best to offer a story of how this came to be. More than anything, I will help you grasp the symbolic value surrounding you and try to leave you with a feeling of bittersweet love for this divided city.

Где вы побываете

The walled city of Nicosia is filled with structures and monuments that stand in time as remnants of the lives of people who existed in this place. We will imagine the iron nails being hammered onto Paphos’ gate and admire the Lion of Venice above the home of Kornesios. We will stand to absorb the vibrant sounds in the middle of Buyuk Han’s court yard and fill the empty space to embody the silence in the Armenian Church. That, and much much more.
