Nicosia is the largest city of the island of Cyprus.

It has been inhabited for over 4,500 years and has been the capital of Cyprus since the 10th century. The Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities of Nicosia segregated into the south and north of the city in early 1964. This separation became a militarised border after Turkey invaded the island of Cyprus in 1974. They occupied the north of the island, including northern Nicosia.

Today North Nicosia is the capital of Northern Cyprus. This state recognized only by Turkey is considered to be occupied Cypriot territory by the international community.

In 2018, Nicosia was the 32nd richest city in the world in relative to purchasing power.
