The last time we visited Kakopetria – our favorite village as you know by now – we walked for the first time in the nature trail ‘Monopati tis Vateris’. It is located alongside the old town of Kakopetria and the river Klarios.
If you ever find yourself in this charming place, I highly recommend to walk the trail. It’s just a kilometer long with a breathtaking scenery. You can sit on the wooden benches that are placed in various locations, take in the wonderful surroundings and let your imagination run wild. Walking by the stream you can hear the sound of the running water, the tweeting of the birds and the loud song of the cicadas.
We really enjoyed our walk and the calming effect it had on us. Looking forward to going back soon.
As I mentioned in other posts Kakopetria village is a place we love visiting.
The architecture of the village is wonderful, especially the old Kakopetria. It is a picturesque village built between two rivers and it is a magnet to every form of artists. Walking through the narrow stone-paved alleys of the old quarter of the village you can find a lot of things to capture.
Most of the old houses have been restored. Their characteristic feature is that the majority of the houses have two floors, sloped and tiled roofs with beautiful wooden balconies.
The main reason that the old quarter of the village preserved its traditional architecture, is the fact, that it has been proclaimed as a protected area from the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus.

One of the places that we love and visit often is Kakopetria, a picturesque village in the mountains of Cyprus. Every time we are there, I always find something interesting to shoot and this time the thing that got my attention was a telephone booth.
Public pay phones have been slowly disappearing due to technological evolution, mobile phones, internet, and free wifi available everywhere. This is making public pay phones obsolete. Seeing telephone booths here and there is nice; it is a reminder of simpler times!
