Varosha is in the Turkish occupied city of Famagusta in Cyprus. It was previously a modern tourist area. In the year of 1974 however, the Turkish invaded Cyprus and tore up the island. Citizens fled, expecting to be able to return to their homes. The Turkish military wrapped it in barbed wire and now controls it completely. Allowing nobody to enter to this day, aside from themselves and UN personnel. Though on the positive side, rare sea turtles have begun nesting on the deserted beaches.
