Havana is an old yet vibrant city, which has had a turbulent history of wars and revolutions. Magnificent buildings, remnants of past glories are decaying next to beautiful, newly built cafes, restaurants, museums and character hotels. There are lovely squares with gardens and restaurants from which to watch the world go by and listen to the sound of live bands playing cheerful Caribbean rhythms.
The Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is mostly pedestrian, with cobbled streets and full of Spanish colonial architecture which has mostly been restored, contrasting with old residential streets that have not changed for decades. In Miramar, wealthy mansions, abandoned after the revolution, remain closed or are now diplomatic missions. There are few cars, mostly remnants of the 1950s, with people travelling mostly on bicycles, motorcycles and horse drawn carts.
