Ledra Street Border Crossing
Ledra Street is one of the most famous streets in Cyprus, being one of the main traditional shopping streets in the capital, Nicosia. However, following the Turkish invasion of northern Cyprus in 1974, it was split between the Greek and Turkish controlled areas, the southern part being within the mostly Greek-controlled Republic of Cyprus (de jure government of the whole island), and northern part being within the self-declared Turkish Republic of North Cyprus (defacto government of the northern third of Cyprus).
After the events of 1974, Ledra Street was split by a barricade and the UN buffer zone between the Greek and Turkish controlled areas.
After negotiations, the street was reopened in 2008, and it is possible to cross from the Greek to Turkish controlled parts of Cyprus (and back) at Ledra Street. There are no immigration checkpoints on the Republic of Cyprus (Greek) side of the crossing, although there are identity checks on people crossing from the North. On the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus side of the crossing, there are immigration checks, however there are no entry/exit stamps placed on passports - just visa slips issued to people crossing.
