With a history that stretches back to the Bronze Age, Nicosia certainly earns its title of the capital city of Cyprus. Nicosia is also the country’s largest city, as well as being the centre for business and finance. Some of the biggest sports venues on the island are located here, such as the Neo GSP Stadium and the Makario Stadium, where you can catch one of the hugely popular football teams in action. A good number of students are located in Nicosia, due to the eight universities in the city, such as the Cyprus International University and the Frederick University. Many theatrical and cultural events are held here and without a doubt one of the best cultural landmarks to visit is the Cyprus Archaeological Museum, which was established in 1882. Ledra Street, located in central Nicosia, is a primary location for shopping and is visited by countless people every year. Bask in the city’s rich religious history by visiting the Machairas Monastery and the Sacred Temple of Virgin Mary Faneromenis, or peruse the local goods at the Nicosia Open Market. Those of you who have relocated in the past will know that it’s essential to prepare thoroughly before you do so. Our simple gauge will help you decide on what size shipping container to use in your move. If you’re moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot container should suffice. If you’re moving the contents of a 3-bedroom house along with a car, or the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, a 40-foot container would be much more suitable.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
