Exploring the Unbeaten Path visits an abandoned airport in the Cyprus buffer zone
The guys from Exploring the Unbeaten Path went to Cyprus. Cyprus is an amazing holiday island, but with a dark past.
It is part Greek (Cyprus) and part Turkish. They still have a buffer zone and there are still soldiers stationed on both sides.
Back in 1974 the Greek military junta ordered a coup d'état on the island and that prompted Turkey to send in it's own troops on July 20th 1974.
They're still at war.
This abandoned airtport in in the buffer zone and it is pretty dangerous to visit it.
