Havana, a Cultural Destination Proposed by National Geographic

Havana, Jan 18.- The Cuban capital is part of a list of 15 cultural destinations proposed by the National Geographic magazine for this 2019.


It is something of a challenge for any traveler. It is a city that is made and unmade every day, notes the material available today on its website.

Havana Vieja is in constant movement, there are small entrepreneurs everywhere, private palates (restaurants), and music, lots of music. This year, Havana will have a new opportunity with the celebrations of its 500 years of history, highlights.

In addition, is adds, another cultural event will attract the eyes of the most movie-loving travelers: the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema in Havana was inaugurated on December 3, 1979.

Another of the Latin American cultural destinations proposed by National Geographic is Salvador de Bahia, Brazil; and Mexico City, Mexico.

The musical soul of Brazil is in Salvador de Bahia. That is a rich soup of multiple musical genres, such as bossa nova, samba or tropicalia, which were born in this vibrant city founded by the Portuguese in 1549, he points out.

In the case of Mexico City, the publication states that it breaks with every image of the city, where horizontality dominates more than verticality. And now, since 2018, it has become recognized as the first American city to be named the World Design Capital, he adds.

The other cultural destinations proposed by National Geographic are Oakland, United States; Copenhagen, Denmark; Cairo, Egypt; Vevey, Switzerland; Dakar, Senegal; Novi Sad, Serbia; Seattle, United States; Galway, Ireland; Dessau, Germany; Matera, Italy; Perth, Australia; and Dordon ~ a, France.

Foodies (comedians), festival fans, treasure hunters in vintage stores and street markets, irreverent moviegoers, museum hikers and art lovers in general will have many excuses to pack their bags this year.

And the trip is the best way to be in the flow of what the world of culture is cooking at every moment, concludes the publication. (Prensa Latina)
