Preparations in Varosha ahead of the visit of the Turkish President and the leader of the Grey Wolves are continuing at a feverish pace. Turkish crews have begun work to upgrade the patch of Varosha to be visited by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who will be accompanied by Devlet Bahçeli.

According to the latest information from the Turkish press, a garden that is to be named the ‘Garden of the Nation of Cyprus’ is being created in the area to be visited on November 15 by Erdogan and Bahçeli.

In the period after 2018, wanting to add an ecological touch, the Erdogan government began creating ‘gardens of the nation’ in various major Turkish cities.

The construction of the ‘Garden of the Nation of Cyprus’ in Varosha is expected to be completed by Sunday, November 15, when Erdogan and Bahçeli will visit the area.

The work for the creation of the garden has been shouldered by the Turkish government, the Konya Municipality, TOKİ (Turkey's government-backed housing agency), and the Taşyapı construction company, that also manages the ‘airport’ in the north.

The Taşyapı construction company assumed the project following a tender that took place in Turkey, and in which Turkish Cypriot companies were not invited to participate, to the dismay of Turkish Cypriot contractors.
