Old managua2

A view of Old Managua, Nicaragua.

Managua, with a population of about 1,817,096 in 2004, is the capital of Nicaragua. Situated on the northwestern shore of Lake Managua, at 12°9′N 86°16′W, the city was made the national capital in 1855; previously the capital had alternated between the cities of León and Granada. Managua is overwhelmingly populated by Spanish-speaking Mestizos. There are also European communities of Catalonians, Germans and French. Asians — entirely Japanese and Chinese (both Mainlanders and Taiwanese) — are also a thriving economic force; they are responsible for many of the hotels and new centers of the "New Managua," they are heavily dedicated to entrepreneurial activity.
