Great spot to view the whole city of Nicosia from the top floor of Shacolas Building. Offers a spherical view of the city of Nicosia as far as the eye can see along with historical data of the city.

For a very moderate fee Eur 2,50 you can visit the museum and go to the observatory. A real must once in Nicosia, let you understand the history of this tiny island since the beginning.

Just see the City of Nicosia from a tall building. As far as i remember there is nothing else to offer.

Located in the center of Nicosia. The tall tower offers a panoramic view of the capital. There are drinks and refreshments.
