    1. Day Agia Nappa (Arrival Famagusta) I

    August 24 in Cyprus ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    After the long crossing, we first had to go through passport control and then decided to visit Famagusta (Turkish: Gazimagusa) and have breakfast so that we could regain our energy.

    After breakfast we took a taxi across the border to the Republic of Cyprus to reach our destination Agia Nappa.

    Fun Fact: Gazi in Turkish means the sacrificing or wounded one. Alluding to the soldiers who took and held the town during the 1974 Turkish occupation.

    To Gazimagusa:

    Famagusta, also known as Gazimağusa, is a city on the east coast of Cyprus. It is known for its well-preserved Venetian city walls from the 15th and 16th centuries, which are now surrounded by a waterless moat. Visitors have a panoramic view from the top of the moat. The huge, honey-coloured Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque was once a Gothic cathedral and dates back to the 14th century.
