Historic Site
“As a Cypriot citizen we are calling it ghost town. Is an abandoned southern quarter of the Cypriot city of Famagusta. Before the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, it was the modern tourist area of the city. As of 2018, the quarter continues to be uninhabited and the entry is forbidden to the public.”

“I love to have a fish dinner every so often, and this is my go-to place in Famagusta. The late night air by the sea is refreshing. The food, meze, drink, and atmosphere are enjoyable. And if you're lucky, you might be serenaded by live musicians. Unfortunately, not found to be open on Sundays.”
