Havana is situated in the northernmost part of the Island of Cuba and of the West Indies crescent, opening onto the Florida Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. Harboring 500 years of history within its walls, Baroque and Neoclassical architecture make up the monumental fabric of the old city. Sun, slinky dancing, icy cocktails in bars fashioned from backyard wrecks and slumping colonial ruins, designer buys, avant-garde art, and a dose of communism draw visitors to the city of Havana.
As the visitors walk the narrow alleyways that are almost as old as Columbus, the houses are decorated with ironwork and arcades, classic cars are parked on the road and the colorful pastel walls scream colonial time-warp. From plays, concerts and exhibitions at the Fabrica de Arte to the ballet showcases at the Gran Teatro de La Habana and the history of Cuban Revolution at the Museum of the Revolution, Havana offers many excursions to its visitors.
