Buenos Aires
San Carlos de Bariloche, Patagonia

Study in Argentina!


Buenos Aires   This famous city is a sprawling metropolis that rises from the Río Plata and stretches more than 194 square kilometers (75 square miles) to the surrounding pampas, the fertile Argentine plains. Block after block of tidy, high-rise apartment buildings interspersed with 19th century houses continue as far as the eye can see. Dozens of suburban neighborhoods, each with its own particular character and well-groomed parks, surround the downtown area. Unlike most South American cities, whose architectural styles reveal a strong Spanish colonial influence, Buenos Aires looks more like Paris, with wide boulevards lined with palatial mansions. Flowers are sold at colorful corner kiosks, the smell of freshly baked bread fills the air around well-stocked bakeries, and cafés appear on every block.

Cordoba   Cordoba is the colonial capital city of Argentina, on the edge of the Sierra Chica mountain range, with approximately one million inhabitants. It has the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities of the country and the center of the city is rich in Spanish colonial architecture from the 16th century. Prior to the rise of Buenos Aires, Cordoba was Argentina's center of arts and learning, a place of scholars and priests, churches and universities. Though in terms of national importance the city has fallen behind the capital, it still retains an independent spirit and distinctive grace. Located in the geographical centre of Argentina, the abundant natural areas surrounding Cordoba offer fantastic opportunities for adventure tourism including parachuting and ballooning, windsurfing, yachting, swimming, mountain climbing and trekking, cycling, horse riding, and fishing.
