About Lefkosia/Nicosia

Nicosia, or Lefkosa (the local Turkish Cypriots call it), is the capital and largest city of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. It is located in the Mesaoria Plain in the center of the island, 35°10' north latitude and 33°21' east longitude.

This geographical location determines the fate of Lefkosa as the economic, political, and cultural center of the island. The government headquarters and foreign representatives are located in Nicosia. It is also home to the offices of the United Nations and the European Commission.

Although Lefkosa is a relatively small city, it brings together people from different countries. Its population is approximately 84,900 (according to the 2006 census). Most of them are local Cypriots and Turks who immigrated from the mainland after the events of 1974.

Lefkosa is currently the only divided capital in the world. Its north (Turkey) and south (Greece) are separated by a green line, which is a demilitarized zone supported by the United Nations.
