Capital of Argentina and Pictures: City of Buenos Aires
Since long Buenos Aires is called “Paris of the South America”.
While this name is fully deserved it still does not reflect the true nature and image of Buenos Aires. The city style is determined by the combination of beautiful French-style architecture skillfully blended with Art Deco and the modern era one. However all that is done the way preserving the charm of the old times (chapeau!).
Sky-scrappers are kept out of the downtown and are mainly concentrated in the area of Puerto Madero. But Buenos Aires is not only about its beautiful architecture – there is much more “in the air” here……

"Suspended Gardens" but this time in Buenos Aires
Teatro Colon (Colon Theater) considered as one of the best in the world is only a tip of the iceberg. Just next to it, along the Avenida Corrientes there are more theaters than on NYC’s Broadway and London’s Soho together.
Teatro Colon - magnificent Entrance Hall

Bookstores are omnipresent - not only that Argentineans still read books but many of them write as well!
Latin American’s art, literature and in general culture is very rich and has a lot to offer. Tango shows as well as many other cultural events happen in front of you on the streets….In other words the Capital of Argentina – Ciudad de Buenos Aires has “something in the air” – something you cannot easily discriminate but you certainly deeply feel.
In 2000 a bookstore "El Ateneo" opened doors in the building of former theater on Santa Fe (Palermo). In 2008 it was ranked by the British newspaper The Guardian as the 2nd best bookstore in the world!
Even bookstores are open just in case you would like to spend the night with an exciting book (there is a saying that “book is your best friend”…). And this is not about “crazy teens” that anyhow do not sleep – you will see middle age people dining and chatting, men in their “autumn” of life occupying bars, drinking beer, smoking cigars and watching football (soccer) games or simply discussing their political convictions…
I hope that this page from Capital of Argentina and Pictures was convincing enough to seriously think about visiting this beautiful city so "Hasta la vista en Buenos Aires"....:-)
