  1. Visit to experience unparalleled fun for kids
    A. G. Leventis Gallery

    Family and Kids

    This gallery is an unexpectedly delightful find for anyone who stumbles across it in Nicosia. It was founded by Anastasios G. Leventis, who’s quite the character. He contributed greatly to the war aid. His interest in art led him to help a lot to repatriate art stolen from Cyprus. Today, his gallery, managed by the foundation set up by him before his death, exhibits art from the three fol...Read more
  2. A place for children with all kinds of interests
    Cyprus Classic Motorcycle Museum

    Family and Kids

    1914 to 1983. If there’s anything important to know about motorcycles between these two years, this is the place to come and find out about it. Andreas Nicolaou spent a lifetime collecting 150 motorcycles (the best of the best of course), including some that were ridden by celebrity races like Zeki Isa. There are three that were owned by Archbishop’s Makarios’ personal guard a...Read more
  3. A guaranteed fun space for the kids
    Famagusta Gate

    Family and Kids

    Built by the Venetians in 1567, this was once the main point of entry into the city, heavily fortified and just wide enough for two carts to pass abreast. The façade facing the town is quite imposing with a great spherical dome of 11 metres in diameter. During the Ottoman period, only Turks were allowed through the gate. It used to be closed at sunset and opened during Sunrise. In 1980, ...Read more
  4. Amazing Nicosia attraction for kids
    Panagia Asinou Church

    Family and Kids

    20 km west from Nicosia, you’ll find this apparently utterly underwhelming looking church. Do not judge this book by its cover! Step inside, and you’ll be stunned by some of the most beautiful Byzantine-era paintings ever. The walls are completely frescoed. It is thought that the work here was done in 1105/6 by an artist from Constantinople. The murals on the narthex though were don...Read more
  5. Can keep your kids busy for days
    Cyprus Folk Art Museum

    Family and Kids

    The building that hosts the museum used to be a Gothic monastery. Architecturally, the main highlight is a beautifully frescoed gothic arch. Inside though, are many items of modern Cypriotic arts and handcrafts. Most of these items were donated to or acquired by the museum from areas that are currently under the rule of Turkish troops. This includes: Wood carvings Embroidery National costumes ...Read more
  6. Perfect for kids day out in Nicosia
    Machairas Monastery

    Family and Kids

    Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, this monastery was founded in the 12th century. The legend of its founding is interesting: it’s said that when an unknown hermit stole a number of sacred icons away, he or she missed the icon of the Virgin. The icon was found much later by two monks, Neophytos and Ignatius, who macheted their way through plants into the cave where the icon was hidden. In Gree...Read more
  7. Fun place to go for kids
    Archbishop Makarios Iii Cultural Foundation

    Family and Kids

    This place gives you a good insight into Cypriotic spirit! The main thing to see here is the Byzantine Museum – a large collection of images from all over Cyprus that show the nation’s development from the 9th through 19th centuries. Highlights include: Mosaics of the church of Panagia in Lythragkomi (525-530). Thirty six pieces of Christ Antifonitis church murals (15th century). A...Read more
  8. A cool place to see with kids
    The Museum Of Barbarism Or Barbarlık Muzesi

    Family and Kids

    They say this is one of the most disturbing museums on the island. It starkly reminds you that Cyrpus was once the centre of a brutal civil war, one that still scars the memories of its population. The location is itself gruesome: the house used to belong to Dr. Ilhan, a major in Turkish army. One night on 24th December 1963, the doctors’ wife, three children and a neighbour were killed b...Read more
  9. A fantastic place for refreshing break for children
    Museum Of The History Of Cypriot Coinage

    Family and Kids

    Cyprus has been using coins since 6th century BC – 500 coins here show the evolution of this currency over 2600 years. There are nine chronologically arranged sections. The collection is exceedingly well curated, highly informative, and an absolute delight to visit.
  10. One of the awesome things children enjoy the most
    Church Of Archangelos Michail

    Family and Kids

    Dating back to the 15th century, Church of Archangelos Michail is a church that emanates age, art and beauty. Built in 1695, it is simplistic and showcases a blend of the architectural styles. You can observe the Franco-Byzantine style, as well as some Gothic influence. It is said that the current structure has taken the place of a Gothic church that used to once stand here. You will get to see...Read more
