The university city of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is Argentina’s capital and, with almost three million inhabitants, the country’s largest city. It is located on the south bank of the Rio de la Plata on the southeastern coast of South America, just across from Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay. Nicknamed the “Paris of the South” for its strong European influence, it is one of the continent’s most progressive and richest cities in terms of architecture, nightlife and culture.

Overall, it is the financial, cultural, economic and commercial center of Argentina. To the west lies the Pampa Húmeda, the country’s most productive agricultural region, in contrast to the arid pampas of the south.

You can visit a variety of museums in Buenos Aires such as the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes or the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires; you will find all subject areas, including history, fine art, modern art, decorative art, popular art, sacred art, crafts, theater and popular music. There are also many public libraries and cultural organizations, as well as the largest concentration of active theaters in Latin America.

The zoo and the botanical garden are world famous, and you can see beautiful parks, squares and churches. The historic center is now made up of the neighborhoods of Monserrat and San Telmo; the Plaza de Mayo in the eastern area was originally the beginning of the early settlement, which had the shape of a semicircle. On the Avenida Corrientes, a well-known street, there are theaters such as the Teatro San Martin, the Paseo La Plaza or the Luna Park stadium.

Tango originated in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, and the city is also home to the Teatro Colón, one of the most famous opera houses in the world. Buenos Aires is located in the temperate climate zone and the average annual temperature is 16.9 °C.
