Nicosia, Cyprus

I love it how i can learn something new about the world with each postcard i get! I haven't had an image of Nicosia in my head before i got this card - and now i am very happy that i do :)
Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus, devided between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities by the Green Line in 1964. In 1974 Turkish Cypriots claimed the north part as the capital of their state Republic Of Northern Cyprus (which is recognised by Turkey only). There are constant efforts to unite the island...To the left you can see Selimiye Mosque, which is the chief mosque of the TRNC. This appears to be a view of the North Nicosia's old town...
Thanks to helen_orlova and her hosting in vacation RR :)
