Nicosia’s Local Tourism has unveiled unique smartboards at the city’s most prominent tourist spots. The aim is to digitize these places to make it more popular with tourists.

The new smart boards installed by the Nicosia Tourism Board can be found around the city at some of the most important local heritage sites. The boards provide thorough information about the history and curiosities of these cities available not only in Greek but also in English so as to make it even more welcoming for tourists.

These boards also feature QR and NFC codes which can be scanned for looking up further background information on these sites. They make a new product for tourists that will come in handy while travelling in Nicosia for both foreign and domestic visitors. It fits perfectly into the framework highlighted by Cypriot authorities of digitizing the island’s tourism industry and making it a smarter and more attractive destination.

The new boards have been designed in the likeness of the neo-Nicosia logo. They can be found at the Eleftheria monument, Hamam Omerye, Famagusta gate, Casteliotissa hall, Faneromini church, the Fairy tale museum, centre of visual arts and research (CVAR), Nicosia municipal arts centre, associated with the Pierides Foundation (NiMac), the Stelios Ioannou library and at the University of Nicosia.
