Map of Occupied town of Kyrenia (partial). You can clearly see the main roads of Kyrenia (Leoforos 25 Martiou - leading to Nicosia-, Ellados, Evagorou, Liverdou, and 28 Octovriou). You can also see the very distinctive Kyrenia Harbor, and the Ancient Castle (where the ancient Greek cargo ship of Kyrenia is kept, discovered by Greek-Cypriot diver Andreas Cariolou Aka "Arris" in 1965 and then again in 1967). Moreover you can see the Kyrenia Greek Gymnasium along with its stadium, the Greek Elementary school and kindergarten, the Seat of the Greek Orthodox Bishop of Kyrenia, the Greek Orthodox Church of Archangel Michael,  the Kyrenia town hall, Kyrenia District Courts, and other administrative buildings. The Turkish Cypriot neighborhood of Kyrenia before the barbaric 1974 Turkish military attack and invasion against Cyprus was on the south eastern side of Kyrenia only. We want the Turkish invaders and oppressors to know that Kyrenia is always in our minds, in our hearts, and our daily discussions. We will NEVER forget our town, our ancient history, and culture there that stretches 3,000 years back in antiquity.  We will always struggle for the safe return and settlement of all 200,000 Greek Cypriot refugees back to their ancestors lands including the town of Kyrenia.
