Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires - description of the city:

The capital of Argentina is usually associated with the name of Evita, tango or football. "The port of our Lady Saint Mary of the Fair Winds" – exactly so sounds the historical name of Buenos Aires. This is a real "city of contrasts" - next to modern skyscrapers the old Spanish quarters are preserved; and many poor neighborhoods and slums are contrasted with fashionable districts of center and suburbs.

The old part of the city resembles at the same time Paris, London and Madrid and new areas of Buenos Aires – are a modern city with multistory buildings and skyscrapers, which contain business centers and offices of large companies. An overall construction of the capital, however, retains the features of the colonial period - the main square with an access to the sea and straight configuration of the streets. The city is rich in greenery, parks and boulevards; in the central part there are a lot of different monuments and memorials.
