Community Council of Evrychou

Evrychou, a picturesque village of Nicosia, the rural centre of Solea, is located about 50 km southwest of Nicosia and 30 km from Troodos. It is located on the old road of Nicosia – Troodos.

Evrychou is built on the eastern bank of the Karkotis River, at an average altitude of 440 metres. Small streams flowing down the slopes to the valley, which break up the landscape of the village.

A. Gaudry, in his book Recherches Scientique en Orient, reports that Evrychou produced the best cotton in Cyprus in the middle of the 19th century. The village gained greater importance after the British occupation of Cyprus, due to infrastructure works that have taken place. Thus, in 1899 the construction of the road that ended in the village from Nicosia was completed. As a village of the area, Evrychou acquired a Police Station from 1905 and was the western end of the Cyprus Railways connecting Famagusta with Nicosia and Nicosia with Evrychou, with a total distance of 72 miles. The Railway, although operated since 1906, it was connected to Evrychou in June 1915. In 1932, a railway branch operated between Evrychou and Kalo Chorio Lefka.
