More Information »»

The capital, Havana, is located in the western part of Cuba. It is one of the oldest cities in the Caribbean and has approximately 4 million inhabitants. Due to the sugar cane trade in the 18th century, Havana experienced an economic boom, and many farmers built colonial style buildings to publicly display their wealth. Today, these historical monuments are still very present. In Havana, which is also known as the “melting pot”, you will find a wide variety of nationalities from all over the world. The city itself has numerous interesting sites to visit and see, such as a wide variety of historical museums and art galleries. La Habana Vieja, which was declared a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 1982, is now also known as the heart of Havana. The most famous street in Havana, Malecón, attracts an endless number of visitors every day, making it known as “the living room of Cuba”. On the nearly 20 kilometer (12 mile) long boulevard, you can admire many historical monuments.

Those that like to relax should definitely visit Playas del Este, an area with four beaches that is located only 15 minutes by car from downtown. This beach district is one of the most visited destinations among Cubans.

Havana is not only the capital city, but also the heart of Cuban culture. The rumba beat can be heard day and night like in no other city in the world. The vibrant streets display the rich history of Spanish colonialism that had been influenced by the strict direction of the political regime. Havana reflects Latin culture with a Caribbean climate and Spanish language flair.
