Sights Uruguay

The capital of the country Montevideo is a large banking and financial center, a very diverse city in its appearance – classicism is combined here with widespread baroque, modernism – with old buildings of colonial times. Ultra-modern buildings are surrounded by parks and beautiful bridges connecting the shores of the Great River.

Independence Square with Mausoleum De-Artigo, 26-storey Palacio-Salvo (1927 g., The highest building in South America), Plaza-Constitucion Plaza, Neoclassical Churches Kabildo and Iglesia-Matriz (1799 g.), National Museum of History, Museum of del Gaucho-and de la Mondo, Old Port of Mercado del Puerto, turned into a colorful shopping center, filled with markets, restaurants, art exhibitions and street musicians.

The west of the capital lies the old colonial city of Colonia del Sacramento, attracting attention to its narrow cobbled streets, curly between colonial buildings, as well as its annual agricultural fairs. No less unfulfilled colony-sui, founded in 1862. Swiss settlers, "City statues" Takoaremby and many colorful fishing villages.
