Lefkosia offers the best in shopping and Stassicratous Street is the place for the ultimate shopping experience. This small street, only about 500 metres long, is located in the city’s busy modern centre, parallel to its most commercial street, Makarios Avenue.
Everyone goes there, even if it’s just to stop for a coffee and snack or to window shop. The well-designed shops are always an attraction specifically because they stock almost all the well-known, international labels. This is where to go to find out what’s on the catwalks in London, Paris, Milan and New York. Fashionista or not, most entrust their lock to the 100 or so designer labels worldwide and these shops have the very latest fashion and are well-informed about current European trends.
Superior designs and attractive displays, combined with professional, courteous staff, are just some of the characteristics you’ll come across when shopping on Stassicratous. And the added bonus is that there are many parking areas for the shoppers’ convenience.
Your shopping experience may very well begin with a cup of coffee or lunch with friends at one of the street’s trendy café / restaurants. Or you can treat yourself to a hair-do or treatment after your successful shopping spree.
The shops on this compact street are small when compared to their counterparts abroad but they are very well put together and offer a more personalized, friendly, shopping experience. This is where the international labels choose to advertise their collections each year, so for window shopping it’s the perfect place to take a stroll at any time of the day or even evening when the shops are all beautifully lit.
And don’t forget if you are visiting Cyprus and you are a non-EU resident, you are entitled to tax free shopping.
