Havana

Havana - description of the city:

Less than 10 years is left to the capital of the "Island of Freedom" and its main tourist center of Havana until its five hundred years anniversary. Architecture of the Spanish colonial rule coexists here with the ultra-modern skyscrapers of concrete and glass. The city is very picturesque: the center of old Havana with its narrow streets of the colonial time is the very history of the country and its capital. Only one catalog of historical monuments of Havana's historic center includes more than 900 objects. In the afternoon, there are always colorful shows in the city, and in the evening, cabarets open their doors.

Entertainment, excursions and places of interest in Havana:

El Templete is a small chapel in the neoclassical style, built in the early 19th century in the very place where, as supposed, the city was founded. The squares of ​​the city are also of great interest: the Armory Square (Plaza de Armas), the Cathedral Square (Plaza de la Catedral), and the Old Square (Plaza Vieja), which are surrounded by magnificent old buildings and facilities that once were part of the walled city.

The Memorial Jose Marti on the Revolution Square Jose Marti was built in 1996. It contains various relics, original objects, documents and prints related to the life and work of this "Apostle of Cuban revolution." At the top of the obelisk - concrete, marble tower (139 meters above sea level) - is the highest observation deck of the capital.

Average price of city tours: a city sightseeing tour - about 20 CUC, the show "Tropicana" - about 70 CUC, visiting places associated with Ernest Hemingway - about 35 CUC, the excursion to the Valley of Viñales - about 70 CUC, and the excursion "The ceremony of cannon fire" - about 15 CUC.
