Profile 

Nicosia is an urban municipality (Capital of Cyprus) situated in the central part of Cyprus (Nicosia district). It has a very long history. Greater Nicosia is probably the only area in Cyprus that can boast continuous habitation since the beginning of the Bronze Age 2500 years BC. The city’s origins date back to the Chalcolithic Age. From antiquity and until the first centuries AD, it was known as Ledra. The Municipality itself was founded 1882. The town has a population of 47,832 and its economy is mainly based on the services sector. Nicosia has a long experience working on European projects. Unfortunately Nicosia remains the last divided capital in Europe, with the ‘Green Line’ splitting its heart in two.
