The Green Line in Cyprus

Around the Capital

Map 4......From west to east Nicosia and then the turn south



The Green Line from the Agios Dometios crosing point, through the old Venetian walled city (marked in yellow) then skirting the northern Nicosia suburbs before the turn south to the Aglantzia Industrial Area and (at the bottom right corner) the University Campus



At the northern edge of the suburb of Omorfita, the Buffer Zone is still very narrow
An almost medieval Turkish bunker faces green camouflaged Greek bunkers




Suddenly, the Buffer Zone widens into open agricultural land with housing (on the Greek side) built right up to the trench lines
The UN patrol road can be clearly seen in the foreground



Close to the University Campus there are signs of development areas that now lie abandoned within the Buffer Zone
