Argentina Part 1 - Tour of Buenos Aires

Tour of Buenos Aires, Argentina
Our city is located in an area of ​​220 (two hundred and twenty) square kilometers. A lot, right? This metropolis refers to the ten largest cities in the world. The population of Grand Buenos Aires is 16 (sixteen) - even a little more - millions of people. Directly in the center of the city - the capital of capital - home to about four (4) million. As for the city's cultural life, it is very - I would say - is active. The city has 98 (ninety eight) theaters and it is only in the capital, 150 (one hundred fifty) art galleries, museums, cultural centers - this is quite an impressive figure.
On every square, every street you must have seen - there are monuments. So in the Capital of more than 400 (four hundred), among which are two monuments to our compatriots: a monument to Prince Vladimir, who baptized Rus and the monument to Taras Shevchenko. It is very nice, is it? Monument to Vladimir is when we drive past the Theatre Colon, you see him, and this year it will be 100 (one hundred) years, and just under the street - under Avinidey - are back rooms of the theater, workshops, museum theater, ballet school. The theater holds 3.5 (three and a half), thousands of spectators, and inside, if someone visited on a guided tour, then you know that it is unusually decorated beautifully: a beautiful golden interior, very nice lobby, auditorium. If anyone has not had time to go there, you can always do - there are guided tours daily.
Here's to your right you see a building with columns - is University of Law, Faculty of Law, University of Buenos Aires, and then again to the right you see a big, big flower - this landmark of the city, which was donated by a very wealthy Argentines, who now lives in the United States. However, he has not forgotten his hometown, lovingly refers to it as the flower cost him millions of dollars. When the sun rises - the petals of the flower open, and when the sun goes down - they are closed. This is a very interesting sight.
A little bit about the history of the city: the city appeared twice, not every city is awarded the honor.
Strict monastic Rule. Indeed, here in this place, where before it was a cemetery at the monastery, and that this chapel (former chapel) and all these buildings here - when it was a monastery here Recoleta with very strict statutes.
The second most beautiful in the world after Paris, and indeed it is a city. They say that a drop of water reflects the sun, so that's just as well in this cemetery - look - it displays as a drop of all the architectural trends of the city. Here is what is inherent in the city, then the characteristic of this city again, the architecture I mean. Pay attention to the architecture itself, parts, arts and decorating the building, pay attention to the lattice on the turret, the sculptures, the stained glass windows - in itself all that is beautiful and literally charms the imagination.
One of the Austrian generals said that he would give all his victories in a single step. Such is the difficult task. Transfer the army through the passes - inaccessible passes - while maintaining combat readiness.
Here it is - the smallest tower. Now you see the one of the first skyscrapers in the world and it's not a joke. The fact is that when the building was conceived, designed, it was designed as the tallest building in the world, but as long as it was built in New York City for the first time to build the biggest skyscraper. This building has a height of 120 (one hundred twenty) meters and thirty (30) floors. In New York, built a building that only ten (10) feet in height than the building - in New York, forty (40) floors. Therefore, it was decided to consider building a skyscraper, which have at least forty (40) floors, so the building was initially lost status skyscraper.
England at the time - at the beginning of XIX century, during the Napoleonic wars - it is doubly good food in Argentina: after all, it was a very tasty morsel, but were repulsed by the claims of England and Argentina remained free. However, a century in Argentina, England, for all ... (end of video)
Here is the pyramid was built in honor of the first anniversary of the Argentine Revolution, but at first it was an ordinary wooden pyramid. After ten (10) years of age on a wooden pyramid was put on here this stone pyramid. Upstairs - Statue of the Republic, and at the bottom - that's around the pyramid buried samples of all the land of the Argentine province as a sign of association.
Here in this place and in place of the old fort, decided that the building was erected like a colonial-mail. What was done: the two buildings were joined here by that central arched dome.
