Best things to do in Havanna

Allgemeine Unterhaltung
“Das Moderne, junge Kuba finden Sie hier. In einer alten Fabrikhalle stellen Künstler auf dei Ebenen ihre Werke aus. Es gibt diverse Bars und eine kleine Tapas Bar in der Fabrik. Man kann also ganz gemütlich, mit einem Mojito in der Hand, durch die Räume wandern und die Kunst bestaunen. Später am Abend gibt es auch Tanz und Life Musik. Nebenan ist ein Restaurant - Reservierung dringend empfohlen - mit einer wundervolen Roof Top Bar. Werfen Sie auf jeden Fall einen Blick in den Schornstein - es lohnt sich!!”

“Only in Havana! The entrance to the city's most legendary private restaurant greets you like a scene out of a 1940s film noir. A decapitated statue at the bottom of a grand but dilapidated staircase leads up past lines of drying clothes to a wooden door, behind which lie multiple culinary surprises. La Guarida's lofty reputation was first fermented in the 1990s when it was used as a location for the Oscar-nominated film Fresa y Chocolate. Not surprisingly, the food is still up there with Havana's best, shoehorning its pioneering brand of Nueva Cocina Cubana into dishes such as rabbit pâté and oxtail risotto. Reservations recommended.”

Museum
“The Museum of the Revolution gathers material and collections related to the Cuban revolution. Former Presidential Palace, it was built between 1909 and 1920 to be the seat of the provincial government of Havana. President Mario García Menocal chose it to be the seat of the Executive. In 1974 it became the Museum of the Revolution and in 2010 it was declared a National Monument. Its more than 30 showrooms store around 9,000 pieces of different stages of the Cuban revolutionary struggle, lead by Fidel Castro. The exhibition rooms cover every stage of Cuban history. In the museum the actions of March 13 are set in their Palace stages. Even if you are not a person into politics, the architectural beauty of this building makes it worth a visit. The construction started in 1909 by initiative of General Ernesto Aubert , then governor of Havana. The project was carried out by the architects Rodolfo Maruri (Cuban) and Paul Belau (Belgian), while the construction phase was assumed by the General Contracting Company. The interior decoration was under the responsibility of Tiffany Studios. The building, designed from the canons of Eclecticism , took for its completion a budget that exceeded one and a half million pesos. Its floors and stairs were covered with Carrara marble. ”

“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.”

If you are interested in ballet or opera performances look out for the programme on the billboard. ”

“In der Bar El Floridita soll der Daiquiri, ein Cocktail aus Rum, Zucker und Limettensaft erfunden worden sein und gilt als ihr Signature Drink. Besonders durch Ernest Hemingway gewann die Bar und der Daiquiri an Bekanntheit, wobei Hemingway stets seine eigene Variante des Cocktails mit der doppelten Menge Grapefruitsaft und Maraschino ohne Zucker getrunken haben soll, den er Papa Doble nannte. Von Hemingway stammt der Ausspruch: „My Mojito in La Bodeguita, my Daiquiri in El Floridita“[1] („Meinen Mojito in der Bodeguita, meinen Daiquiri in der Floridita“). An der Theke im Barraum des El Floridita sitzt eine 2003 von José Villa Soberón geschaffene bronzene Figur von Hemingway, die von den Bar”

“Der 1559 als Plaza Nueva angelegte Platz verlor im 19. Jahrhundert an Bedeutung und erhielt seinen heutigen Namen, Plaza Vieja (Alter Platz). Bis 1835 war hier der Mercado de la Reina Cristina angesiedlt. Während der Batista-Diktatur wurde unterhalb des Platzes eine Tiefgarage errichtet.”

“The National Museum of Fine Arts of Cuba is an exciting art museum that is housed in two buildings located next to the famous Paseo de Martí, in the center of Havana. Its objective is to restore, preserve and promote the works that are part of Cuba's plastic heritage and is equipped with 24 rooms where old art collections are exhibited, art rooms dedicated to teachers of all times and rooms with temporary exhibitions. This is, without a doubt, one of the best art museums in the Caribbean. In it you can spend a whole day watching all kinds of art, from Cuban pop art to Greek pottery.”

“In my opinion the best place to eat in Havana. The food is of excellent quality, a wide wine selection, the service is efficient and you really get value for money. It's located opposite the Capitol. It will take you 15 to 20 minutes to walk from our place. You don't need to book so far ahead. Usually there's a little queue at the entrance. You'll be in after 15 to 20 minutes. But if you're definitely queue-impatient, then book on-line. Use the website shown. Note there are steep stairs to go up to the first floor. If you can't handle it, then rather visit D'Lirios, which is on the ground floor and also on this guidebook.”

“One of Havana's best Jazz venues, La Zorra y El Cuervo, which has shows every night at 11pm. Look out for the red English telephone booth - thats how you enter! Entrance is $10CUC but includes 2 drinks.  Show begins by 11pm but arrive by 9:45/10ish to get in line for a good seat - the place is small and fills up fast!”

“Keep it simple. The secret at Doña Eutimia is that there is no secret. Just serve decent-sized portions of incredibly tasty Cuban food. The ropa vieja – shredded beef – and minced beef picadillo both deserve mentions. Doña Eutimia was the first private restaurant to grace this small cul-de-sac near the cathedral. Now, there are at least five other restaurants and a rugby scrum of jineteros (hustlers) trying to lure you in (avoid them and you'll save money). ”
