(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Explore Havana's exclusive and upscale side with a visit to Miramar. The residential district houses a number of foreign embassies, including the landmark Russian embassy built in a striking Constructivist style by Soviet architect Aleksandr Rochegov. The district has a renowned history as home to some of Havana's richest residents prior to the revolution--as evidenced by the great number of luxury mansions and large houses still in the area. Plenty of activities abound in the neighborhood, from architectural sightseeing and dining out to tranquil ambles through botanical gardens.
