Cuba consists of the main island of the same name (105 007 km 2), the Isla de la Juventud (2 200 km 2) and many small islands and coral reefs. Florida in the USA is only 200 kilometers from the north coast of Cuba. The main island is 1,200 km long. For comparison: In Germany, the longest distance from north to south is 876 km as the crow flies. Cuba is the largest island in the Antilles and is mainly occupied by a lowland. The highest mountain in the Sierra Maestra is 1,974 m high. The longest river is the 370 km long Río Cauto. For comparison: the Ems in northwest Germany is about the same length.
The original vegetation of the lowlands consisted of savannas interspersed with wet forests. This landscape was destroyed after the conquest by the Spanish colonists. Agriculture has been practiced there since then. The mountains are covered with forests. The wildlife has over 300 species of birds, including the four-color deaths and the Kuba trogon.
The world’s smallest bird, the bee elf, lives only in Cuba. It is one of the hummingbirds and weighs only 2 g. Snakes and crocodiles are also native to the island: the aggressive diamond crocodile only occurs on Cuba and a neighboring island. It is also called the Cuban crocodile and eats turtles, fish, water birds. It is critically endangered because there are only about 4,000 specimens left.
A total of 275 areas in Cuba are under special nature protection, including 14 national parks and four biosphere reserves. The Desembarco del Granma National Park and the Alexander von Humboldt National Park are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Cuba has a humid marginal tropical climate. The winters are dry and in the summer it rains a lot. The monthly temperatures are between 20 ° C and 28 ° C. The island is hit by hurricanes, which repeatedly cause severe damage and also kill people.
Cuba was discovered by Columbus in 1492, conquered by the Spanish in 1511, conquered by the British in 1762 and ceded to Spain in 1763.
From 1898, Cuba was under the United States. From the crises in the wake of the global economic crisis was Fulgencio Batista y Zaldívar (* 1901, † 1973), supported by the US, as a strong man, and finally military dictator (1940-44 and since 1952) out.
1959 became Fidel Castro Prime Minister after driving Batista out with his guerrillas. Castro turned Cuba into a socialist state. In 1961, a landing of Cubans in exile in the Bay of Pigs, planned and supported by the American secret service, failed. They wanted to overthrow the Castro government. Because of the subsequent establishment of Soviet missile bases on the island, the so-called Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in 1962. This was a confrontation between the USA and the USSR that brought both great powers to the brink of nuclear war: after the USA blockade of Cuba, the Soviet Union withdrew its missiles. Even after the Eastern bloc collapsed in 1989/90, the Castro regime refused to carry out fundamental political reforms. The discontinuation of Soviet economic aid in 1990 presented Cuba with major economic problems. In July 2006, the 80-year-old handed over Fidel Castro passed all offices to his brother Raúl Castro (* 1931) due to illness. In the spring of 2008, Raúl Castro was officially elected President.
In 2015 diplomatic relations between the USA and Cuba were resumed. The US had previously removed Cuba from the list of state supporters of terrorism. In 2016, Barack Obama visited Cuba as the first American President since 1928. Miguel Díaz-Canel (* 1960) has been the new President of Cuba since April 2018. After almost 60 years, Cuba is no longer run by a Castro.
