The Republic of Nicaragua, whose Capital is Managua, extends over an area of
130,000 km2 where live about 5,500,000 people.
Spanish is the official language but english is widely diffused, too.
People are mostly Roman Catholic, but though a minority, Protestants profess their faith, as well!
It is in Old Managua where most of the Governmental buildings are. Mangua underwent natural disasters like earthquakes, floods and fires which made rebuilding really difficult! It was in 1972 that an incredibile earthquake destroyed most of what Managuans with love for their native town and patience had built in the course of years.
At present Managua is a lively young and thrillingcity where tourists can easily get anything they need.
Students from any part of the country are welcomed there, not to mention the various campuses in Managua district, for higher education.
