Visit Maraş (Varosha) – The Ghost Town

Coastal city of Maraş (Varosha) was the crown jewel of the Mediterranean holiday destinations until the Turkish military intervened to stop intercommunal blood shed following the then Greek military government in Greece from overthrowing the Cypriot government with the goal of unifying the island of Cyprus with Greece in accordance with their long sought after plan of Enosis.

The city, which is part of the greater Famagusta district located on the south-eastern coast of the island was closed permanently to all civilian activates including trespassing. Since 2019 parts of the city has opened up for day visits and sightseeing for locals and tourist.
