Cyprus: Nicosia

On Wednesday I got a postcard from Cyprus.

The card shows an aerial view of Nicosia. Nicosia is the largest city on Cyprus. It is the last divided capital city in the World. It is the capital of the Republic of Cyprus and the northern part is also the capital of Northern Cyprus. The Faneromeni Church (in the foreground) is located in the southern part of the city, while the Selimiye Mosque (in the background) is located in the northern part.


Stamps:
Refugee Fund (issued 02-04-2015)
Traditional Folk Art of Cyprus (from set of two) (issued 10-03-2016)


Thank You very much Marcel!
