Nicosia, Cyprus - The last divided capital
Wednesday, 01 November 2017
Since 1974 and up until today, Nicosia has been divided in two by barbed wire and fortification works. It is the only European Union capital that has been forcibly divided by foreign occupying troops. The free part of Nicosia has changed and is evolving with leaps but the images in the Buffer (Dead) Zone haven’t changed in almost half a century. The young soldiers of the Cypriot National Guard keep watch in the narrow streets of the dividing zone defending the ideal of freedom. Their fathers did the same. But for the powerful of the world, pacts and maintaining the balance with the intruder seem to be more important than these ideals.
ADD A COMMENT
A exciting tour in Constantinople to investigate credible information regarding the burial ground of the last Byzantine emperor Constantine Palaiologos. The information we gathered is astounding!
The volcanic soils of Santorini give a very good taste to all of its agricultural products.
Vlach village at the tops of Tzoumerka with a rich history and traditional houses of a unique architecture.
It has been brazenly contaminated by industrial pollution, but it managed to survive and now it even looks attractive.
The graduates of Zografeion are a Greek core of enormous cohesion that can never be broken. They withstand the persecutions, because they draw strength from one another.
At the almost southernmost part of Greece, beside the Libyan sea, there are peaceable and religious people who still find the simplest ways to have fun.
The Easter Eve Mass in the Greek Church of St. Mary of Blachernae is quite an authentic experience.
A blow by blow account of the last moments of Costantine Palaiologos, the last reigning Byzantine emperor, at the Gate of Romanos. The breathtaking story, told through pictures taken at place he martyred, brings pain to the Greek people.
