Havana | Cuba

The city of Havana was first established in 1514 along Cuba’s southern coast and moved to its current location, near a deep harbor and protected channel, along the norther coast in 1519. It quickly became a top port for the Spanish Empire before becoming the capital of Cuba in 1607. Havana continued to grow under the influence of the United States through the middle of the 20th century until Cuba’s 1959 revolution, notes the Frommer’s travel website. Today the city is home to approximately 2.5 million residents and remains much the way it was at the time of the revolution, though construction and tourism have begun to spruce up the area.
