Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina.


Gran Buenos Aires, situated on the coast of the De la Plata river, with more than 13 millions, is one of the biggest cities of South America. Being an important economic and cultural center, it is considered the capital of the Tango. Its architecture shows the combination of different styles, and gives it an spesial beauty.


Theaters, cinemas, museums and different cultural activities make it a recommendable city to visit. An other important attraction of it are the big and luxurious shopping centers, as well as discoes, restaurants and cafees.



Buenos Aires is also called the "Paris of the South" strongly influenced by European culture while retaining Latin charm. It is one of the most sophisticated cities in Latin-America renown for its nightlife and cultural activities. With its countless bars and cafes, bustling streets and nocturnal population, Buenos Aires is a place of infinite movement. It seems hard to find another city in Latin America with so much passion and excitement. Largely because Buenos Aires is amazingly still undiscovered by most tourists, you will quickly be embraced by locals (porteños) happy to meet foreigners. With high standards of living, very low crime rates, and an underdeveloped tourism crowd, our students have found Buenos Aires an ideal place for learning Spanish.


Whether sitting at an outdoor cafe watching the beautiful porteños, dancing Salsa until morning, playing soccer in the parks, or watching a world famous Tango show, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires provides entertainment for everyone. The city is indeed large (three million residents), however it is very walker-friendly and public transportation (metro and buses) offers fast and efficient movement between all of the traditional neighborhoods. Even with the energy supplied by the porteños and the nightlife, Buenos Aires is a remarkably safe city at all hours and students will feel comfortable in our neighborhood. Standards of living are high, and even drinking the local tap water presents no problems. South of Buenos Aires lie many beaches, including the famous resorts of Mar Del Plata (140 km from BA). All of Argentina's tourist locations are easily accessible from Buenos Aires, by economical domestic flights, by rail, and by bus.

The plush Italianate Teatro Colón, at Cerrito 618, (54-11) 4378-7344 or 7305, www.teatrocolon.org.ar, has been one of the world's great concert halls ever since it opened in 1908, and the winter season already under way features an extensive program of both opera and orchestral works. The Buenos Aires Philharmonic performs each Thursday, for example, with invited soloists like the American violinist Joshua Bell (July 10 2003 at 8:30 p.m.), and the pianist Marta Argerich will be making a rare hometown appearance on Sept. 4 2003 at a festival in her honor.


The Mozarteum Argentino, Rodríguez Peña 1882, (54-11) 4811-3348, www.mozarteumargentino.org, is also sponsoring a winter-long cycle of concerts to be held at the Colón, predominantly featuring European artists. Highlights include the Mainz Bach Choir from Germany on Aug. 20 and the Budapest Festival Orchestra on Sept. 12, both at 8:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale at the Colón five days before each concert.


The Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Latin American Art, known as Malba, opened in 2001 and has the largest collection of its kind on the continent, worth seeing anytime. Until Aug. 18, it is also featuring the first one-man show in Buenos Aires since 1986 by the highly regarded Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca. Closed Tuesdays, but open the rest of the week from noon to 8 p.m., Wednesdays till 9; admission $1.33. At Avenida Figueroa Alcorta 3415, (54-11) 4808-6598, www.malba.org.ar.


The Fundación Proa, Avenida Pedro de Mendoza 1929 in the Boca neighborhood, where the tango was born, is sponsoring "Abstract Argentine Art," a wide-ranging exhibition that has just returned from a tour of Europe and will be on view through mid-July, featuring 29 artists. Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; admission $1; (54-11) 4303-0909.


It is possible to enjoy futbol (soccer) games in Estadio Monumental, home of River Plate team, or at La Bombonera, home of Boca Juniors. Argentina has won the cup twice, so a high level of play can be expected. The price of tickets has yet to be determined, but the Argentine Soccer Association at (54-11) 4372-7900 will eventually have that information.



Sightseeing


Buenos Aires is a city of parks - framed by museums, restaurants and grandiose monuments - that are ideal for strolling or picnicking. Parque 3 de Febrero is part of a complex that begins in Palermo and runs northward to the city limits, but the initial section contains not only the city zoo and a planetarium but also some of the most interesting places to stop and relax: an Andalusian patio, a Danish rose garden, and a Japanese pavilion and lake.


Most visitors go to the downtown Calle Florida pedestrian mall for its shopping, notably for its boutiques selling leather goods and furs, but the milelong promenade is also a must for anyone interested in architecture. An itinerary that ends in leafy Plaza San Martín, named in honor of Argentina's national hero, passes banks, department stores and clubs built during the early years of the 20th century, when Argentina was prosperous and the byword in construction was opulence.


A favorite residential area for the elite in the city's early years, San Telmo is a colorful, semi-bohemian area dotted with cafes, antiques shops, cobblestone streets and colonial architecture. The best time to visit is Sunday, when a flea market fills the Plaza Dorrego, heart of the neighborhood, and performers, including tango dancers, take to the streets.


The mystique of Eva Perón persists, more than 50 years after her death. The Peronist faithful still flock to her grave in La Recoleta Cemetery, and as of last year there is a new place of pilgrimage: the Evita Museum, Lafinur 2988, (54-11) 4807-0306, www.evitaperon.org, which tells the story of her life and death and features memorabilia from her careers as actress and political idol. Open 2 to 7:30 p.m. except Monday; admission $1.65.


One of the city's best kept secrets is the grandly named Museo Municipal de Arte Hispanoamericano, in an all-white churchlike neo-Colonial mansion at Suipacha 1322, (54-11) 4327-0272, a neighborhood of art galleries and antiques stores. The principal focus is the colonial art of the Andes, including an impressive collection of silver, but there is also a spacious, quiet courtyard that is an ideal refuge from the bustle of downtown. Open Tuesday through Sunday, 2 to 7 p.m., with tango lessons offered Monday and Thursday.
