Category: Cuba

One of the last communist countries in the world, located on a tropical island in the Antilles, with idyllic places. The capital is Havana and the official language is Spanish. Next to the main island, Cuba has about 4 thousand islets. There are more than 300 white sand beaches and clear waters, including Varadero, Holguín, Cayo Largo del Sur, Ciego de Ávila and Villa Clara. From the 18th to the 20th centuries, Cuba was an important sugar producer. In 1902, he gained independence. In the 1950s, it was the richest island in the Caribbean, but there were casinos and a lot of corruption. In 1959, a popular revolution, led by Fidel Castro, took power in Cuba. In the 1960s, the country became a communist and the United States imposed a trade blockade. Despite having a virtually zero illiteracy rate, Cuba is a relatively poor country, where there is no civil freedom for the 11 million Cubans (2018). The government continues to balance the need to give more economic freedom, with the desire to maintain political control firm. The average Cuban standard of living remains below that which existed in the early 1990s, when there was considerable financial aid from the former Soviet Union.
