Famagusta

Famagusta (Greek: Αμμόχωστος Ammóchōstos, Turkish: Gazimağusa/Mağusa) is a city on the east coast of Cyprus, de jure capital of the Famagusta District. It is currently the capital of the Gazimağusa District of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus which is only recognized by Turkey. All other countries consider the city to be legally part of the Republic of Cyprus. It is located east of Nicosia, and possesses the deepest harbour of the island. Home to the Eastern Mediterranean University, Famagusta has a walled city popular with tourists and a vibrant nightlife. The Turkish army restricts all access to the once-thriving quarter of Varosha, which today remains uninhabited and surrounded with a barbed wire.
