Amazing facts-Ghost town, Varosha

Varosha is a district of Famagusta in Cyprus. It was invaded by Turkey in 1974.

Before that Famagusta was one of the most popular tourist hotspots on earth - Elizabeth Taylor even stayed there. But when Turkish tanks rolled in, the entire population fled and the invaders fenced off the Varosha quarter, allowing no-one in.

The areas bars, high-rise hotels and up-market restaurants are now crumbling, as nature slowly retakes the region.
