Embark on a New Life in Havana

With a history dating back to 1592, Havana is a showroom for a variety of architectural styles and striking landmarks, such as the Capitolio Nacional, the baroque styles of Old Havana and the breathtaking Museo de la Revolución. With a strong performing arts scene, a visit to the Ballet Nacional de Cuba and the ornate Great Theater are a must. Havana's economy spans a number of industries, including manufacturing, construction, transportation, communications, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and food processing. The importance of the port is seen in shipbuilding, exporting, and a significant fishing industry, but tourism is the city and country's main contributor.
