The most populous and cosmopolitan city in Argentina - Buenos Aires!
The streets of Buenos Aires are an astounding mix of grandeur with alluring Latin influences and a large dose of vibrancy.
The architecture of the 1908 opera house, the Obelisco de Buenos Aires and 19th-century buildings such as Casa Rosada, the iconic, balconied presidential palace, all radiate charm and offer visitors an insight into Argentina's rich history, ensuring the city maintains a certain seductive essence about it.
The Latin influences in Argentina are strong yet not overwhelming, showcasing themselves in both old and new music and the arts. The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is perfect for witnessing significant artwork from European masters, ranging from pre-Renaissance days to the here and now. Art is not just confined to the galleries in Buenos Aires - the streets are used as a canvas for many talented and inspiring street artists whose murals proudly enhance the vibrancy and colour of the city.
Whilst the many theatres can allow you to experience the sensation that is Tango by watching the world famous dance, you can also try yourself at a Milonga. Milonga's are dance salons which are dotted throughout the city and allow you to watch and learn amongst beginners and the more advanced, or show off your moves with your own partner.
Buenos Aires is a city full of life and culture, and has a somewhat confidence amongst its stark contrast of old and new - and proudly so.
