Information about Buenos Aires / Argentina
Buenos Aires is the largest city of Argentina with a population of 15 million people. It is the second largest city in South America. When you first see Buenos Aires, we are sure that you will think that you have arrived in Europe. Buenos Aires, founded in the 16th century, is located around the Rio De La Plata. Today, in the 21st century, this wonderful city that has survived the centuries and replaced many of its conquerors, architecturally resembles the most famous streets of many European cities.
Buenos Aires consists only of boulevards and avenues. The Avenida 9 de Julio is the largest Avenue in the world with 18 lanes and a width of 127 meters. In the middle of the Boulevard, in 1936, in honor of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Buenos Aires, an Obelisk was built. He welcomes every passer-by, towering over the city buildings. Of course, you can assume that you have not been to Buenos Aires, if you have not seen the Plaza de Mayo. On this square is a pink house, or in Spanish Casa Rosada, which to date is a workplace of the President and the government of Argentina.
