Argentina

Capital: Buenos Aires
Population: about 35 million
Area: 2.8 million sq. km.

90% of Argentines belongs to the white race, and are descendants of Italians and Spaniards. Indian population (already mixed with the white) is only 4,5% of the population. Aboriginal peoples and tribes, such as mapuches, collas, tobas, matakos, currently constitute only 0,5%.

Geography
Occupying almost a half of the southern part of South America, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world. It borders with Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, and Chile. In the east is has the Atlantic Ocean coast.

Language
Hispanic. Also German, French and Italian are used.
Each country has its main river. The Parana river stretches for nearly five thousand kilometers. Its tributaries are the names of Argentina’s neighboring countries: Uruguay and Paraguay. Lower reaches of the Parana river are called La Plata and at the confluence to the ocean, where the capital and other major cities are situated, it is three hundred kilometers wide, like a sea. To protect adjacent areas from devastating floods, it is planned to build huge dams, with power stations. In the future, the river basin of La Plata may be connected to the Amazon river.

Customs and traditions
Argentines, by absorbing the traditions of many nations, have created their own culture. A symbol of the country is ‘gauchos’, meaning "wanderers" in the language of Indians. ‘Gaucho’ never part with their guitar and their songs are popular across the whole country. Argentines are very musical people. Argentine music is known throughout the world. The country even has a national holiday: the day of tango!   View more information about Argentina at Argentina Travel Agents, Accommodation, and Tours
