The City of Revolution and Salsa

Cuba is among the most unique destinations in the world and its capital city offers an amazing experience with breathtaking architecture, lively salsa clubs, vintage American cars and a relaxed street atmosphere. The more than 500-year-old city has a rich history that can clearly be felt in its different districts, but especially in the old part, on the streets and squares of “Habana Vieja” or Old Havana, which is also inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city has been through periods of piracy, colonialism, War of Independence, mafia rule, Cuban Revolution and the US trade embargo - it has survived a great deal, but nonetheless (or perhaps because of it) managed to retain relentless energy and incredible appeal.

Havana will relax even the most sceptical visitors and entice them to flow with its rhythm. Stay in one of the many elegant colonial guesthouses and get to know the locals and their way of life. Drive a vintage American car along the Malecon, the famous coastal road along the Atlantic Ocean, then let yourself go to the beat of the music in the streets. Treat yourself to a Cuba Libre or Mojito and watch the street musicians and dancers create a dance studio on the streets. They will invite you to join them, so get ready for a quick salsa course. Another real dance treat is a visit to the Tropicana Cabaret Club, the home of amazing shows.

Havana will pleasantly surprise you by its artistic culture. Many works by Cuban artists are exhibited in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, while their modern counterparts gather at events at the Fábrica de Arte Cubano. Fans of literature can walk in the footsteps of the famous American writer Ernest Hemingway, with the El Floridita bar containing the writer’s statue, as the centrepiece. And do not leave Havana without visiting one of its main attractions, the Museum of the Revolution, where you will learn all about the Revolutionary War and other key events in Cuban history.
