Havana is Cuba's capital, with its 2.2 million inhabitants Caribbean's largest city. In addition to being a city is also one of Havana Cuba's 14 provinces. This should not be confused with the province of La Habana surrounding the city Havana.
Havana is located south of Cuba and adjacent to the Florida Strait to the north and the province of La Habana in the west, south and east. The city of Havana is well located 144 miles southwest of Key West, Florida. Havana was disgruntles in 1519 by conquistador Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar in 1515 went from Hispaniola to colonize Cuba, and so put Cuba under Spanish domination.

The capital Havana, with its two million inhabitants, is the Caribbean's largest city and may exhibit a contrast filled streetscape dominated by American cars from the 50's, rusty Russian Ladas, horse carriages and Chinese bicycles. Havana's old town, founded in 1500, is declared by UNESCO as part of world heritage conservation. You understand why when one moves through the narrow, cobbled streets, past the heavy doors of solid wood and the balconies of wrought iron. In the Plaza de Armas, the city's old parade ground, says trees. Where was the city's first council was elected, and the inhabitants of Havana attribute trees almost magical powers. The square is also surrounded by beautiful historic buildings Castillo de la Real Fuerza, Havana's oldest fort, and El Palacio de los Capitanes Generales - an impressive palace in Baroque style, which was completed in 1791, ready to accommodate the Spanish colony's governor. An absolute must on many trips to Cuba is one of the factories that produce the famous cigars. Here you can see how cigars rolled in your hand and hear the story of how the Indians of Cuba taught Europeans to smoke.

In the capital Havana is the mean temperature in the coldest month 21 ° C and in the warmest 27 ° C, in Santiago de Cuba on the south coast is the corresponding average respectively 24 ° C and 28 ° C.
