Korakou Community Council

Korakou was a mixed race village (Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots) of the Nicosia District until 1964. After then, it was only populated by Greek Cypriots. It is located in the geographical region of Solea, about 51 km southwest of the capital, Nicosia. To the north of Korakou and within its administrative boundaries lies the abandoned Turkish Cypriot village of Agroladou.

Korakou is built near the western bank of the Karkotis River, at an average altitude of 420 metres. On both sides of the Karkotis valley, the surrounding hills rise somewhat sharply, thus providing protection for the crops from the winds. To the west of the village the relief is mountainous and the altitude reaches 921 metres (Mosphileri Peak). The landscape is divided by small streams that flow into the valley.

The Community Council has advanced and implemented a series of projects to improve the living conditions in the area.
