What do you know about St. Kitts?


It appears on maps thanks to the efforts of Christopher Columbus. Long before that, the island was inhabited by Carib Indians, and they lived here for thousands of years.

At that time, the Spaniards did not want to establish their own rule over the territory, so the first settlements of European countries appeared here only in the 19th century.

As the centuries went by, France and Great Britain fought hard for the right to become the owner of the "tidbit. As a result, the beautiful territory went to the British.
