    Managua sightseeing

    April 18, 2019 in Nicaragua ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Despite the announced protests we dared to visit some places in Managua. We took a taxi to the Plaza de la Revolucion and walked to the coast of Lake Xolotlan. At Puerto Salvador Allende it was completely empty. No one was around and all the restaurants were closed. In the rest of Managua we could feel the tension. Today and yesterday countless heavily armed policemen were guarding the roads and some major places.Read more

    Managua

    December 23, 2014 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Spend about 16 hours here. We had to catch a bus to Guatemala so we had about 18 hours here. We went to a mall, got some suplies, watch The Hobbit 3 and then went for a long walk through a big avenue full of crazy ugly "belenes" which is the representation of jesus birth. Then we got to this pier full of restaurants and karaoke bars dedicated to latin american revolutionary figures like Bolivar, Che, Allende, Sandino and so on. The thing is, I did not bring my phone. So there's no pictures of this crazy and weird landscape. But seriously it was strange as fuck.Read more

    Plaza de la Revolucion Managua

    March 11, 2015 in Nicaragua ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Eigentlich hätten wir Managua, die Hauptstadt Nicaraguas direkt wieder verlassen müssen. Maurizio, unser Reiseführer aber macht mit uns doch einen kleinen Stopp an der Plaza de la Revolucion, wo wir uns sofort an Kuba erinnert fühlen.

    Ein Erdbeben zerstörte im Dezember 1972 große Teile der Hauptstadt. Seitdem ist die Kathedrale Santiago de Managua nur mehr eine Ruine.

    Gesäumt wird der Platz vom Präsidentenpalast und dem Palacio Nacional, in dem heute ein Museum untergebracht ist. Gegenüber der Kathedrale findet sich noch ein Schrein der Sandinisten.
