Contested border between the Greek Cypriot part of Cyprus and the Turkish part of Cyprus. The border runs along the edge of the island and through the captial Nicosia. This is now the only Divided Capital City in the world, after the unification of Berlin. The UN has a presence here and keep a no man's land between the two parks of the island. Included in the no man's land is the city of Famagusta. This was a busy resort that was entirely evacuated during the 1974 invasion by Turkey. It is now left as a 1960's time capsule of a resort. Abandoned as a forbidden zone.

You are no allowed to cross the border. Meaning that the Nortern part of the island is only visitable by boat.

It is also a bad place to break down in a car.
