History of North Cyprus Güzelyurt

Güzelyurt also known as Morphou is located in the Northwest sector of the Cyprus island. This region is known as having one of the richest agricultural areas in Northern Cyprus. The reason for this richness is said to be its fertile read soil. From here Northern Cyprus produces oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and strawberries for consumption and export.

Güzelyurt has not yet become as developed as other cities in the TRNC and thus is a great place for those who want to get away from it all. There are many places around Güzelyurt that serve as perfect camping or picnic spots. Here you can enjoy a traditional Sunday of cooking shish kebabs on a grill and passing the day away by the sea, under a tree, or why not both. If you visit in spring you may see white orange blossoms floating through the air and giving the area a lovely scent of orange.
