Welcome to Northern Cyprus
The constant beating of the wave of the east against the rock of the west.

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean; North Cyprus is the Turkish controlled part of the island of Cyprus. In 1960, Cyprus has been divided into two separate states. Since 1974 the North is called the TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) North Cyprus welcomes thousands of tourists each year by air and sea. There are plenty of beautiful sandy beaches and famous, most beautiful wild flowers grow in here. There is lots of history to see everywhere, in Northern Cyprus.

Northern Cyprus (Turkish: Kuzey Kıbrıs), officially the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC; Turkish: Kuzey Kıbrıs Türk Cumhuriyeti, KKTC), is a de facto state that comprises the northeastern portion of the island of Cyprus. Recognised only by Turkey, Northern Cyprus is considered by all other states to be part of the Republic of Cyprus.

Northern Cyprus extends from the tip of the Karpass Peninsula in the northeast to Morphou Bay, Cape Kormakitis and its westernmost point, the Kokkina exclave in the west. Its southernmost point is the village of Louroujina. A buffer zone under the control of the United Nations stretches between Northern Cyprus and the rest of the island and divides Nicosia, the island's largest city and capital of both sides.
