The Autonomous City of Buenos Aires is the federal capital of Argentina. Located on the shore of the Rio de la Plata, it is a pulsating cosmopolitan city with a palpable warmth, boundless confidence, and a contagious energy and passion.
The combination of rich architectural and multicultural heritage, electric nightlife, unique traditions, a vibrant arts scene, extensive parks and open spaces, and warm, friendly people creates one of the world’s most exciting capital cities.
Long seen as the cultural capital of Latin America, the city has more theatres and book shops than any other in the world, plus the region’s largest cultural centre and a wealth of museums, art galleries, and cultural venues.
Designated Ibero-American capital of Gastronomic Culture 2017, the city also boasts outstanding culinary options, from elegant 19th century “bares notables”, where you can sip a coffee at the same marble tables where politicians, society celebrities and literary giants once met, to some of Latin America’s most acclaimed and experimental contemporary restaurants and bars.
The city’s diversity can be seen in the distinct characters of its 48 different neighbourhoods. Areas like Recoleta and Retiro show the city’s historic opulence, with elegant neoclassical architecture and monuments; the cobbled streets of San Telmo guard secrets of the city’s colonial past beneath its bohemian, artistic vibe; trendy Palermo showcases the city’s hip avant garde arts scene, bursting with fashion boutiques, new start-ups and hip bars, while the regenerated portside of Puerto Madero rises up over the Rio de la Plata with its gleaming skyscrapers.
The city boasts a pleasant climate and many parks and open spaces in which to enjoy it, while recently, it has been leading the way in terms of sustainability with the introduction of cycle lanes, a free public bike share system, pedestrianised areas and the modernization of the public transport system.
