The Pedieos (ancient Pediaios or Pediaeus or Pidkias) is the longest river in Cyprus. The river originates in the Troodos Mountains close to Machairas Monastery and flows northeast across the Mesaoria plains, through the capital city Nicosia. It then steers east, meeting the sea at Famagusta Bay close to the ancient Greek city of Salamis. The river has a total length of approximately 100 km. An 18 km stretch of the river banks, in and around Nicosia, has been turned into pedestrian walkways.
