Monday 4th June 2012 was a public holiday in the Republic of Cyprus as it’s Kataklysmos Day.
As we needed to visit the philately department in the north of Nicosia it was a good day for our trip because we knew the shops and businesses would be open due to the different religion/culture.
It appeared that most of the residents in the south of Cyprus had the same idea as the queues we beheld at the crossing point on Ledra Street were the longest we’ve seen since April 2008 when it was officially opened.
Anyway, after our duties were performed at the philatelic office we had a few hours to wander around the city. We decided to explore some different streets than those we usually visit.
Of course, the camera came too!
The above photos were taken just after the tourist “shopping” street and close to the main square. We believe the first two photographs may be of the Court building.
