Hi there,

I am travelling to Cyprus to work for a few days soon. I will be working at the following address - Telecommunications Str., Strovolos.However, I cannot find it anywhere on a map (not even google maps!). Am I correct in saying that Strovolos is a suburb of Nicosia? I am looking for a nice hotel near the city centre where it won't take me to long to get to work in the mornings by taxi but its hard to choose a hotel when I don't know where Telecommunications Street is!

Any help would be much appreciated.



Re: Strovolos

Hello from Nicosia

Yes Strovolos is indeed a suburb of Nicosia but so closed to it that is practically one city! Stovolos is larger municipality than Nicosia municipality...
Stovolos is on your left hand hand if you are entering the city from the motorway (highway) while coming from the airport....

What else is in Strovolos?
Central Bank of Cyprus
Marks & Spencer Home
Dasoupolis Lycium
Ayia Paraskeui Alfa Bank Branch
WV Cars Showroom

Other main Roads
Armenias Ave
Lemesos or Lemesou Ave

Let me try and find a map and i will tell you where Teleccomunications Street is....

If you are coming to Larnaka airport it is 40 km to Nicosia by car or taxi ask for Kapnos Buses at the airport. Travelling every one hour fron Larnaka to Nicosia. it is very cheap only 7 euros. Closest Bus Shutle in Strovolos is Filoxenia Bus Shuttle. From there you can take a taxi (always available taxis there)and go to your apartment or hotel... few minutes drive

I think Telecommunications Street it is near my apartment (short term accomodation...) but want to be sure before i tell you some more things....

When are you coming to Nicosia(Stovolos)?

Should you need any more information let me know...

Best Regards

Unfortunately only in Greek
Cyta stands for Cyprus Telecoomunications Authority - the street took it's name after this.

It's like i told you... if you are coming from the motorway (from Larnaka Airport) this area is on your left hand!

Best Regards


Travel Tips for Nicosia

Crossing the border. Nicosia.

by alectrevor

Walking across the border, the south dont bother much, in or out. The north ( if you EU ) require a little form with name , passport number, and nationality, in or out.In the picture the red box is the south office, the dirty blue sheeting is covering the derelict no mans lane buildings, The little roundabout with the decorative poles has nothing to do with the border.

Stroll through the old town

by anna-m

What I liked most about this city was the beautiful mixture of the old and the new: tall buildings and shopping centres standing side by side with picturesque old churces and houses What I allways remember with a smile is a stroll through the old town during a quiet summer afternoon, taking in its architecture, its cosy narrow streets of stone, its shops, cafes and restaurants....To me, the old town is what Nicosia is all about

south nicosia

by call_me_rhia

South Nicosia is the greek part of the capital - rich, modern - but not very much vibrant - especially in the day. At night it is lively and busy, so it is a little more charming. It also offers more restaurant opportunities than in the northern part. Sights are not as impressive as in the northern part, desite some nice greek ortodox churches. I had my best moments early in the morning, when it was still sleepy and quiet. When aggressive car drivers hit the road, it becomes a little bit hellish.

Behind the green line

by Aggeliki

The Turkish Cypriots use the divided part of Nicosia as the capital of an internationally unrecognized (except for Turkey) state known as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The population of the part of the city under the control of the Republic of Cyprus is 270,000. As everything changed from 1974 when Cypriots forced to abandoned their homes after the Turkish invasion, this part of the city seems to be very different from the other.

The traditional ‘café’ culture

by Profsmiley

Cypriot men, especially as they get older, like to spend time in tradional coffee houses, chatting away - discussing everyday matters, playing backgammon, reading newspapers. It’s a break from the wives and daily chores like grocery shopping. A coffee house is sort of the equivalent of a boys’ club.

Each village in Cyprus – both in the North and South, has at least one coffee house where the men hang out. The cities have them also, but it might be harder to find them. There is also a few women-only coffee houses in the cities.

If you like to chat up with locals, it’s one of the best places to go – as they are usually friendly, and almost always opiniated ;-)
