Currency Conversion


Nicosia in the world’s only divided capital (read the history). It has that grimy front-line charm I like. The old town is very agreeable, albeit a little sedated. Personally, I’m quite fond of Nicosia. It’s culturally kicking and very unique.

The Girls

Klelia Yiasemidou

Greek or  Turkish, Cypriots are sexy. In Nicosia, more than likely you’ll be on the south side where you will be interacting with those of Greek heritage. Similar to the Greeks, Cypriots have dark features and olive complexions. You will see some striking and sexy faces. Their bodies are average for Europe, similar to other Mediterranean types like the Spanish and the Italians.

In general, they are less liberal than Greeks, but less conservative than Turks. I assess this is part due to a small population, and part due to conservative historical influences for the East and the Ottomans. They are a little harder to bed than others in the Med, but are game on all the same.

I would recommend Nicosia to get the flag. Not only is it the most populous city (<400,000),  it also receives considerably less tourists than the seaside towns, encouraging your exotic capital. For day game, Pedestrian Ledras street is by far the best spot.

Nightlife Recommendations

Nicosia nightlife can be pretty varied. The city has a great pub culture, but no real centralised nightlife strip per se. Here are some place I liked or picked up in.

Cave Bar

Located at Skali. This bar is built into an actually cave! A little out of the way and not a place to pick up (although some smoking bar girls), but the perfect place to bring a date. Lowlight romantic candlelight and plush make out cushions. Bring her to the cave and she’ll make you’re bedrock.

Nameless Rock Bar

Tiny place down some dodgy the middle of nowhere. A real ‘in the know’ place.  You’ll arrive thinking – WTF?. But late at night it’s gets full of sexy rock and goth chicks (my thing, if not avoid). I was there twice and each they’re was way more women than men. Scored a Russian here.

Kala Kathumena

Another ‘in the know’ place just of Ledras. Attracts students and the Artsy/Boho crowd. It’s outdoors and a good place to start the night.

Club Nuovo

One of Cyprus’s biggest clubs. The main hangout for the young and beautiful. It’s a little loud but it’s massive and has the best looking girls around. Peacock a little to set you’re apart. Black guys seemed to do well here also.

Getting High

Where to get weed. Go to that bar Kala Kathumena mentioned above. They are nearly smoke. Just ask around..

Marijuana prices: skunk for 35 euros per gram and weed for 20.

More info: Do not even think of smoking in public. you will be arrested immediately. never have marijuana on you as you walk through the city.. at late times e.g 2 A.M+ if the cops see you and you look suspect you may be searched. this is unlikely but it can happen.

My Nicosia Experience

I end up joining a EU interpretative theatre group of all things! Had a great time here. I also met four women in five days. In the process got two flags –  The Flag of Aphrodite & My Iranian flag. Check those stories out!

    How does Cyprus look architecturally? Does it have the old time charm of the Plaka district in Athens?

      Hard to describe. The old city walls looks great, they were built by the the Venetians.Inside old town looks like Sarajevo meet Athens… It’s cute, but it’s not Tallin, Sarajevo or Montenegro.
