Northern Cyprus: Nikosia (Turkish Cyprus side)

You come the heart of Nikosia and there is only one street that is not blocked by a wall. You go through two separate passport control check points and emerge in different country – feels and looks a lot like Istanbul. Spectacular mosque minarets tower high above the town, cheap knockoff goods are for sale everywhere, Turkish coffee smell permeates the streets. Everything is in Turkish, and most tourist comes from the south to shop, lira is the official currency here. There are several beautiful mosques and the old inn caravan serai buildings.
