La Habana vieja 5.0 stars
Quarter - #1 of 20
Havana Vieja is the downtown of Havana and definitely one of the best places to visit. It's interesting to walk around those lovely plazas and try to observe the real Cuban life and atmosphere, but what you really see in the center are foreign ... [more ]
Capitolio 5.0 stars
Government Building - #2 of 20
One of the highlights of Havana definitely is the Capitolio. This enormous building is said to be the second tallest building in the city, right after the Bacardi Building and is a very good replica of the Capitol in Washington DC. Well, I ... [more ]
Plaza de la Revolucion 4.0 stars
Square - #3 of 20
In Havana there is a red tour bus with on and off priveleges that does a loop around all the interesting points. You can catch it from downtown and it only costs like $5-$6. As part of your day you can visit the Plaza of the Revolution. It ... [more ]
Chinatown 4.0 stars
Quarter - #4 of 20
Although all the travel books are full of information encouraging to visit Cuban Chinatown in Havana, we were still kind of skeptic about visiting it. I couldn't imagine in any way what Chinese people would do in Cuba and how on earth did they ... [more ]
Real Fabrica de Tabacos Partagás 4.0 stars
Industry, Economy - #5 of 20
I'm really glad I took the tour of Partagas when I went to Havana. I just wouldn't have been a complete trip to Cuba if I hadn't visited a cigar and a rum factory. Anyway, Partagas is one of the oldest cigar factory in Cuba and it still functions ... [more ]
Castillo de la Real Fuerza 5.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #6 of 20
One of the last places I visited in Havana was the Castillo de la Real Fuerza. I was looking really forward to visiting it as soon as I got to Havana, but the friends we met in a restaurant in Havana Vieja already had a well planned itinerary, so ... [more ]
Malecón 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #7 of 20
I think the Malecon was one of my most favorite places in Havana. It's a 5km wall on the seaside and pretty much one of the most active places in Havana. This is one of the places where Cubans interact with tourists and try to sell stuff or even ... [more ]
Plaza de Armas 4.0 stars
Square - #8 of 20
One of the lovely plazas in the Havana Vieja is the Plaza de Armas. The plaza is pretty large and has many points of interests. I didn't have time to enter any building, but they all looked lovely. The plaza was clean and tidy and there were many ... [more ]
Plaza de San Francisco de Asis 4.0 stars
Square - #9 of 20
Another beautiful plaza of Havana Vieja is the Plaza San Francisco. I really enjoyed my time in Plaza San Fransisco, as my boyfriend and I took a lovely ride with a carriage around the center and also had a drink at the famous Mercurio Cafe. The ... [more ]
Plaza vieja 4.0 stars
Square - #10 of 20
I didn't spend much time in Plaza Vieja, but I really liked it. I think it's the most touristy plaza of all of them. There are very many restaurants and cafes all around it and it's always full of people taking pictures. It's a bit too crowded ... [more ]
Edificio Barcardi 4.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #11 of 20
If you're ineterested in some rum-related history, the only place you can really visit in Havana is the Bacardi Building. Even though you don't really get a tour and a free rum sample, the building is worth entering. At the moment, there are ... [more ]
Museo de la Revolucion 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #12 of 20
The Revolution Museum in Havana is pretty interesting to visit. The exterior of the building is extraordinary and impressive. It was built by the dictator Fulgencio Batista, who tried to impress the Cubans and the foreign governments at the same ... [more ]
Castillo del Morro 5.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #13 of 20
Another important highlight of Havana is the Castillo del Morro. This palace or fortress is located on the beach and you can easily reach it from the Malecon. The fortress is really large and beautiful, as it was built in the 16th century. I love ... [more ]
Cathedral square 5.0 stars
Square - #14 of 20
Cathedral square is one of the most beautiful places in Havana. It is the host of the17th century church Catedral de San Cristobal. It represents the Baroque style but looks more moderate in "lace" decorations as you would normally expect. It ... [more ]
Fraternity Park 5.0 stars
Park - #15 of 20
After visiting buildings and fortresses for the whole morning and afternoon, I felt like relaxing somewhere in a forest or a park, but not too far from the city center. Some locals recommended the Fraternity Park, which can be found in the area ... [more ]
Bridge Havana-Matanzas 5.0 stars
Bridge - #16 of 20
I wasn't going to visit Matanzas. At least, it wasn't part of my initial plans. But as I got to Cuba, many locals we met told us to go over the great bridge that unites these two cities. We decided to go and see the bridge and go back to Havana, ... [more ]
Habanos Cigar Factory 4.0 stars
Industry, Economy - #17 of 20
Not far from Havana's main capitol-style parliament building, is the city's principal cigar factory. You'll know when you are near it - random people will approach you offering cigars for sale (usually best avoided I understand, but I didn't look ... [more ]
Catedral San Cristobal 4.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #18 of 20
One of the most famous cathedrals worldwide, the Cathedral of San Cristobal in Havana is a real must-see. The structure dates from the late 18th century and its main style is baroque. It is said that Christopher Columbus' remains laid there for ... [more ]
Granma 3.0 stars
Sculpture, Monument, Statue, Memorial Place - #19 of 20
There is that famous Fidel Castro's boat "Granma" in Havana. It is standing in a glass box outside of the Museum of Revolution. We didn't have time to visit the museum itself, but wanted at least to have a look at the boat. We were really ... [more ]
Cigar Factory 3.0 stars
Shopping - #20 of 20
We had a problem with our travel agency and they offered us a free bus tour to Havana as the way of saying they were sorry. We wanted to discover Havana ourselves but decided to use that bus tour as a second opportunity to visit it. On the way ... [more ]
