Bar de Coquetéis
“This place can be very busy. If you love tranquillity, then stay away. But if you are looking for the most genuine Havana's culture and vibe, then do not miss out. It has been very famous, since its foundation, for the Cuban typical dishes, i.e. black beans, fried pork chunks and fried banana. Ernest Hemingway made it popular for becoming a frequent client and a lover of the Mojito cocktail they offer.”

Clube de Jazz
“Havana's most famous jazz club (The Vixen and the Crow) opens its doors nightly at 10pm to long lines of committed music fiends. Enter through a red British phonebox and descend into a diminutive and dark basement. The scene here is hot and clamorous and leans toward freestyle jazz.”

Capitol Building
“The National Capitol Building (Capitolio Nacional de La Habana) is a public edifice and one of the most visited sites in Havana. The building was commissioned by Cuban president Gerardo Machado and built from 1926 to 1929 under the direction of architect Eugenio Rayneri Piedra. It is located on the Paseo del Prado Road in the exact center of Havana. According to its architect the inspiration for the cupola came from the Panthéon in Paris. The project began on April 1926. Construction was overseen by the U.S. firm of Purdy and Henderson. To finish its construction they needed more than 5000 workers, 3 years, 3 months and 20 days; as well as approximately 17 millions of American dollars". Inside of the main hall, under the cupola, is the Statue of the Republic (La Estatua de la República). The statue was cast in bronze in Rome in three pieces and assembled inside the building after its arrival in Cuba. It is covered with 22 carat (92%) gold leaf and weighs 49 tons. At 15 m (49 1⁄4 ft) tall, it was the second highest statue under cover in the world at the time, with only the Great Buddha of Nara being taller. Embedded in the floor in the centre of the main hall is a replica 25 carat (5 g) diamond, which marks Kilometer Zero for Cuba's National Highway. The original diamond, said to have belonged to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and have been sold to the Cuban state by a Turkish merchant. Prior to the Cuban Revolution of 1959, the Congress was housed in the building. The Congress was abolished and disbanded following the Cuban Revolution in 1959 and the building fell into disrepair. As of 2013, the Government of Cuba has been slowly restoring the building for use once again as the home of Cuba's National Assembly. A visit to this building is very recommended.”

“The Acuario Nacional de Cuba opened on January 23, 1960, with just 13 fish tanks in place, but it gave visitors the opportunity to see several fish and sea invertebrate creatures. The number of tanks increased, giving room to new species until 1973, a year that was marked by the arrival of Silvia, a seal that became the most popular creature among visitors. Later, in the 80s, a show was introduced with two dolphins, Diana and Ciclón.”
