The village of Fikardou, at 1060 meters, is part of the province of Nicosia and is one of the favorite destinations of Cypriots for a day trip
The biting cold of winter is unusual on the island of Cyprus, but yet here we are in the midst of it. Even lower-lying villages can't escape the snow, turning them into winter wonderlands that seemingly rival some villages in Austria or Switzerland.
The village of Fikardou, at 1060 meters, is part of the province of Nicosia and is a favorite day-trip destination for Cypriots. Now our favorite village is blanketed with snow.
A video posted on Instagram by both Visit Nicosia and Fikardou shows the tiled roofs, patios and terraces covered in white. It is a truly magnificent spectacle to behold.
