As an observer; walking in the streets of Havana and being exposed to the electric culture, diverse and complex lifestyle is mesmerizing. That's why Havana became on the hottest spot for artists, specially painters, musicians and writers. Just behind the famous street of Prada in Havana you can observe the real life style of Cubans in Havana. Paseo del Prado, is a street in Havana, Cuba, on the dividing line between Centro Habana and Old Havana. Technically, the Paseo includes entire length of Paseo Martí. Havana is the capital city, largest city, province, major port, and leading commercial centre of Cuba. The city proper has a population of 2.1 million inhabitants, and it spans a total of 728.26 km2 (281.18 sq mi) – making it the largest city by area, the most populous city, and the third largest #metropolitan area in the Caribbean region. The city extends mostly westward and southward from the bay, which is entered through a narrow inlet and which divides into three main harbours: Marimelena, Guanabacoa and Atarés. The sluggish Almendares River traverses the city from south to north, entering the Straits of Florida a few miles west of the bay. The culture of Cuba is a complex mixture of different, often contradicting, factors and influences. The #Cuban people and their customs are based on #African, European and indigenous American influences.
