The home of tango and favourable winds
Buenos Aires, the temperamental capital of Argentina, guards different cultural heritage objects and the preserves the distinctiveness of the country. The city originated tango rhythms, which then enveloped the whole world. First visitors gave the port-city the name of Buenos Aires, meaning “Fair Winds”. It is recommended to taste some of the delicious local dishes and get acquainted with treasures of local ancient relicts.
How to travel?
Cheap flights to Buenos Aires reach their finish in one of the two airports: Ministro Pistarini Airport at a 35 kilometre distance from the city centre, and Jorge Newbery Airport, which is 8 kilometres away from the city. These distances can be overcome by using local buses. Buenos Aires also offers metro and tram public transportation systems.
What to taste?
Argentineans love eating meat, and we recommend trying a lot of various meat dishes while visiting Buenos Aires. Gourmet lovers will find the spicy chorizo sausage interesting. Also worth trying are non marinated beef roasts and culets. Exotic tasting beef stew with potatoes, corn, and pears will be great for lunch.
When looking for something to snack on, choose empanadas and order some locro, which is a thick stew made from pumpkins, onions, ham, and beans. For dessert, why not try some mate and traditional pastries with milk or caramel, or taste some green banana pie and dark chocolate with hot pepper.
What to see?
Buenos Aires is decorated with many buildings of Spanish, Italian, and French architectural influences. The city is divided into districts that differ not only on both the administrative and aesthetic basis. For example, the La Boca district will surprise you with its cosy little colourful houses, meanwhile the San Telmo districts has a very distinctive feel of European eclecticism to it.
While visiting Buenos Aires, take some time to see the cemetery of La Recoleta, which has some beautiful tombstones and includes the final resting places for many famous Argentineans, including the gorgeous Evita, which had been waving from the Pink House, or the Presidential Office of Argentina. Also worth seeing is the Congress Palace, shimmering with power and splendour.
If you like nature, head over to the wonderful February the 3rd Park, or the Palermo Woods. Here you will be able to enjoy a refreshing lake. Worth paying attention are also the fauna and flora of the Zoological and Botanical Gardens. The Galileo Galilei planetarium will offer a romantic view at the Argentinean night sky.
