Havana, with over two million inhabitants, is the largest city in the Caribbean and is located on the Bay of Havana between the Atlantic Ocean and the Straits of Florida. Old Havana, originally founded by the Spanish, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982. Since then, the city’s historic centre has been completely renovated and will be refinanced by tourism. The number of foreign visitors has been growing rapidly since the 1990s with tourism currently being one of the city’s most important economic sectors. Havana is the cultural centre of Cuba and offers a wide range of attractions – museums, palaces, colonial-style public squares, avenues, churches, fortresses (including the largest fortification built by the Spanish in America), ballet, cinemas and theatres.
