Kythrea (Greek : Κυθρέα ) is a community in the Nicosia District of Cyprus, in the region of the island occupied by the Turkish army.

Kythrea is situated near the ancient kingdom of Chytroi which was founded by Chytros. Chytroi was one of the ten city-kingdoms of Cyprus in antiquity. According to one tradition the name Kythrea came from Chytroi. According to another tradition the name Kythrea is derived from the name of the Greek Ionian island Kythera from where millstones were transferred to Kythrea's watermills. The village was watered for millennia by the Kefalovrysos spring. However, shortly after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus the water stopped flowing.

The village of Chrysida is part of the municipality.[1]

Panicos Chrysanthou, director of Akamas (2006 film), was born in Kythrea.
