The capital city of Cyprus

The present city was most probably built on the site of the ancient city kingdom of Ledra which was rebuilt in about 300 BC by Lefkos the son of Ptolemy Soter and named after him. Under Byzantine rule the name became Lefkosia, this was changed under Lusignan rule to become Nicosia, and again during the Ottoman period to become Lefkosha.
