A trip to Kakopetria in Cyprus

Kakopetria is a Town in Cyprus located 55 kilometers southwest of the capital, Nicosia, on the north facing foothills of the Troodos Mountains. It takes around 40' to drive from Nicosia to Kakopetria and the road is quite easy. There are two small rivers running the village, so i took some pictures. Although this year wasn't so good in terms of water.

Apart from the rivers, there is old village of Kakopetria that is well preserved. Although  there are modern additions, the aesthetic remains like a traditional village in the mount of Troodos in Cyprus.
