“My” Trinidad de Cuba

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the small city of Trinidad in Cuba. It is considered one of the most picturesque cities in Cuba (probably in the world) and this for a good reason. The city structure is simple, with small streets and houses. People are more than friendly and surprisingly happy. Colors are everywhere and that suits very much my photography since I love colors.

Trinidad is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites , because of its long history (was founded in 1514) and also because of its architecture that remains almost unchanged the last 60 years.

You can read more “professional” info about Trinidad’s history HERE.

However, here is my perspective in pictures:

    1. Thank you for your comments!
      Recommendations from my side:
      Visit Cuba ASAP, since you like traveling.
      Havana is a very nice city. You need at least 1 week there (do not miss the Museum of Fine Arts – at least 3-4hrs to see it).
      Trinidad is like a dream… Very picturesque. You need definitely 2-3 days to enjoy.
      Visite more places than the main cities.
      Beaches at Varadero are as pretty as the look in pictures (even more…).
      Also, people are everywhere friendly and want to talk with you. However they are poor. I very much regretted the times that I did not give them 1 euro to take a picture of them. For us it is not much but for them it is a lot…
      Cuban people are friendly, kind and very prowd.
      From what I saw criminality is very low especialy compairing with modern big cities of the, so called, Western World.
      I would like to hear what you think about Cuba after your trip…

      1. From what I have found out, you even might have problems with US government. They told us that if they find out that you have been to Cuba, you might have to pay 15.000USD as a fine. I do not know if it is true however.
        Anyway, since US and Cuba started talking, it might be that soon you will be able to do this trip. You will love it!
