Ledra Street, Nicosia
Ledra Street is one of the most famous streets in Nicosia. Full of shops, bars and tourists, this 1-kilometer street is a must-see attraction.
It is the main shopping street in South Nicosia and symbolizes the division between the North and South Nicosia.
The name of the street refers to the ancient city-kingdom of Ledra, established in 1050 BC, that was located in the centre of the island where the capital city is today.
The “Resolution” (Civil Rights Monument) on Ledra, created by Cypriot sculptor Theodoulos Grigoriou, was donated by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education & Culture on the occasion of the European Cultural Month. In October 1995 the artwork was placed in front of the National Guard border crossing post. “The Resolution” is a protest to the violation of human rights.
