There are three main areas in Havana, the most centrically and crowded: Old Havana (Habana Vieja), Havana Center (Centro Habana) and Vedado (The newest). The first two are pretty similar, with an incredible architecture that contains over 1000 building of historical importance. Full of bar and restaurants is for sure much appropriated for travellers looking for a far different city. Vedado (means forbidden, due to it was a forest reserve of the colony), in pass century was the home of the elite of Havana society. Full of big residences and lot of activities, nice paladars is considered by locals the really center of the city.
