Kyrenia District information


Kyrenia District
Map of Cyprus showing Kyrenia district.

Kyrenia District is one of the six districts of Cyprus. Its main town is Kyrenia (Greek: Κερύνεια; Turkish: Girne). It is the smallest of Cyprus' districts, and is the only one controlled in its entirety by the unrecognised de facto state of Northern Cyprus, where the same territory is administered as the de facto Girne District, a distinct entity.

It is bordered on the south by Nicosia District and on the east and south-east by Famagusta District. It includes much of the north coast, with the towns of Kyrenia, Lapethos and Karavas. Also the Kyrenia Mountains, which overlook the coast, with the prominent castles of St. Hilarion and Buffavento.

Unlike the portions of Nicosia, Famagusta and Larnaca under Northern Cyprus' control, which are variously partitioned into five of its six districts, the boundaries of Cyprus' de jure Kyrenia District are coterminous with Northern Cyprus' de facto Girne District. A district administration-in-exile exists in the Republic of Cyprus-controlled part of the island, near Ledra Palace, while the TRNC district has a kaymakam.
