Discovering North Cyprus 9/10/2017, The Bedestan, Lefkosa

By Engin Dervişağa…….

By popular demand I am delighted together with my colleague Qossay Eleyan to broadcast again a short English and Arabic language programme on “Discovering North Cyprus” about the Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church), which is one of the main cultural heritage sites located within the northern part of the walled city of Lefkosa (Nicosia).


Since 2003, thanks to EU funds, UNDP-PFF, under the framework of Nicosia Master Plan, has initiated the studies, investigations and design for the restoration of the Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church). The restoration of the Bedestan (St. Nicholas Church) aimed to contribute to the revitalisation of the Selimiye Quarter, a focal point of the unique cultural heritage of the Walled City of Nicosia.

This fine building is now used for exhibitions, cultural events and much more and is a must on a visitors wish list.
