In the 1970s this town was a bustling tourist attraction with between 35 and 45 thousand individuals moving within and throughout its gates. After a while, it became a hub for the rich and famous, resulting in the construction of many high-rise structures. The Turkish invasion is what changed the future of this town. In 1974, their invasion forced all citizens had to abandon it to fell for safety; it remains abandoned to this day. Military occupants have received strict orders to ‘shoot on sight’, for anyone who attempts to enter this restricted area. Like a town frozen in time, you’re still able to see remnants of its past, embodied in car dealerships fully stocked with vintage (back then) top of the line cars for those who could afford it.
