TRIP TO NICOSIA

Students visit the Presidential Palace Students visit the Presidential Palace

Students at ASPIRE got a taste of political high life on Friday when they visited Nicosia’s Presidential Palace.

Pupils were given a guided tour of the building, which is the official workplace and residence of the President of the Republic, and even had the opportunity to take a peek inside the President’s office.

After a short coach ride learning about passing points of interest, pupils then took a stroll along Ledra street, a major shopping thoroughfare that links North and South Nicosia.

Here, the children were able to observe a crossing point and learn more about the last divided capital city in the world.

Before returning to ASPIRE, students visited Shacolas Tower, a museum and observatory housed in the capital’s highest building that offers sweeping views of the city and its surroundings.
