In spite of hotel and property development, North Cyprus retains a rugged charm that the south has long since left behind. The latest edition of Bradt Travel Guide: North Cyprus caters to travellers interested in exploring ancient and modern culture, including the recent history behind the estranged Turkish north and Greek south. In-depth historical details accompany listings for the many classical ruins, monasteries, churches and castles, and a handy timeline in the background information section provides a broad historical overview. Visit the remote Karpas Peninsula with its charming villages and deserted beaches, stroll along picturesque Girne harbour, or hike to St Hilarion – one of North Cyprus's three Crusader castles.
