Managua is situated on the southern shore of Lago de Managua and is Nicaraguas capital and largest city. The old city centre was destroyed by an earthquake in 1972 and the city was left with a widespread sprawling series of suburbs with shopping malls rather than grand Plazas. Managua is the national centre for commerce, manufacturing and goverment. The Area Monumental was the heart of the old town and is an eerie zone of ruined colonial buildings and monuments. The city is the country`s nightlife capital and famous Nicaraguan folkmusic is alive and well at La Casa de los Mejia Godoy
