The panoramic view is really nice and I liked that it had a small "room" where you can listen to the city's history while watching a video. On the other hand there is no access for people with special needs or parents with strollers. The...More

I recommend you to visit this observatory&museum in order to understand more about Lefkosia. You'll have a 360 degrees views with a map and the main buildings of the city located on it. Also a video documentary presentation of the history of Lefkosia.

Hardly worth visiting as there really isn't that much to see at such a low level. Its only 2.50 so at this price doesn't really matter if you waste your money. No pram access!

This was a great find. Really easy to locate next to the main entrance of H&M. Worth the 2.50 euro entrance fee. Great views of the city below from all 4 sides and a really informative video and info panels

The entrance is just off Ledra Street, in the H&M building. No problem with the lift up to the 11th floor, then you pay your 2.50 euros and enjoy panoramic views over Nicosia with interactive displays informing about various landmarks and a film about the...More

It takes a little finding as you think you are in the wrong place as not very well sign posted. In the old Debenhams building (most of the travel guides still say that), now a H&M. Once you go up in the lift (it's a...More

Up the lift to the 11th floor, pay your €2.50 & get fabulous views of the city. Good history & diagrams to assist identification. Well worth a visit. ( Next to H & M)
