Port of Spain
Port of Spain is the capital of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, its political, economic and cultural center. The city has many historical and architectural sights, as well as entertainment centers and restaurants, and thousands of tourists come here during the carnival.
In the city and its environs, there are many species of tropical birds, distinguished by unusually bright plumage. In particular, about 40 species of hummingbirds live here.
How to get there
There is no direct flight from Russia. The flight from Moscow to Port of Spain is carried out by British Airways in transit through London (tourists need to apply for a British transit visa, as they change airports in London).
Entertainment and attractions
The architectural appearance of the city combines three cultures: Christian, Islamic and Hindu. Therefore, it is not surprising that on the same street it is really possible to meet a Christian cathedral, a Muslim mosque, and Hindu temples. The main attractions of Port of Spain are: the Anglican Cathedral, built in 1816-1823, the Catholic Cathedral, built in 1832, the National Museum, the National Archives and the Art Gallery. The city has a Royal Botanical Garden Savannah with a large collection of exotic plants.
Other attractions of the capital: Independence Square, Ginderbrad House, Magnificent Seven Park, Trinidad and Tobago History Museum, Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Weather in Port of Spain
In January, the average air temperature is +26 degrees, in July – about +27 degrees. The dry season lasts from January to May. At this time, the heat is somewhat weakened due to the influence of cooler air currents brought by the trade winds. During the rainy season (June-December), heavy tropical downpours and gusty storm winds are often observed in the city.
Tobago is located about 30 kilometers northeast of Trinidad. This island is much smaller and quieter than Trinidad. The rolling plains of Tobago are covered with dense tropical forests, making the island ideal for fans of ecotourism. The island’s forests are considered one of the oldest forest communities in the Western Hemisphere and have long been protected.
On the coast of the island there are many picturesque sandy beaches. The main tourist centers are concentrated in the southwest of the island near the town of Crown Point. There are many diving centers here, as the southern border of the distribution of coral reefs lies in the coastal waters of Tobago.

The evergreen forests of the islands are carefully protected, for which numerous reserves have been created for such a tiny territory, as well as the unique Buccoo Reef marine reserve.

Local attractions include the villages of Mount St. George (Georgetown, the first British capital of the island), Goodwood, Roxborough, Goldsborough and Pembroke, the colorful First Historical Cafe in Studley Park, the beautiful building of the old sugar plantation Richmond Great House (now there is a hotel, a restaurant and an extensive collection of African art and textiles), the Argyle waterfall (the highest on the island – 54 m), the beautiful Kings Bay (one of the few places on the coast that has a good beach with a fairly developed infrastructure), and the Speyside and Little Tobago Island Conservation Areas, which protect nesting sites for many seabirds.
