Argentina is an amazing country with an unusual culture (9 photos)
If you want to see a truly unique place of our planet, not spoiled by thousands of tourists and visitors, then be sure to go to Argentina - a place that will forever remain in your memory.
The second country in the territory and the third in the population of South America, which once bore the proud title of "one of the richest countries in the world", today is not going to slow down its pace of development.
In the old days, tens of thousands of Europeans, hoping to find happiness and prosperity in the lands of distant but beautiful Argentina, moved there from the farthest corners of the world. Today, shades of the French and Spanish past are peacefully coexisting here, which can be easily seen in culture, faith, and even the way of life of Argentines.
To get to Argentina, you will have to move at least a 15-hour flight across the ocean, perhaps a few transfers and connections, which, at first glance, is too exhausting even for dedicated travel lovers.
Nevertheless, every year tourist demand in this direction is growing, although, of course, there are very few Russian tourists in Argentina, so they are perceived as a kind of exotic.
What is so attractive and attractive in this place that it makes not only visit yourself once, but return there again and again, in spite of the difficulties of the flight and impressive financial waste? The answer is simple: in Argentina there is almost everything that I would like to see with my own eyes!
These are amazingly beautiful waterfalls, kilometer-long warm beaches, snow-white ski resorts and high mountain peaks, dense forests, the southernmost city of our planet, located on the famous Tierra del Fuego, glaciers of the Southern Hemisphere and the “silver” Lago-Argenito lakes.
And what about the motley kaleidoscope of cultures, which vividly reflected on the sights and architecture of the country, the dynamic and seething capital of Buenos Aires, which concentrated the main points of the country's history and glory in its domain, will not leave anyone indifferent.
Whatever you say, but even the most biased tourist has something to look at on holiday in Argentina,because all of the above is just a small list of common words that in no way describe the whole greatness of this place on planet Earth.

- Argentina, in addition to its own natural beauties, still has something to present to the world: for example, it is believed that it is here that the most delicious and natural wine is produced, which every tourist must try.Argentine wine is one of the items that bring the traveler home, also do not forget about local tequila, whiskey and brandy. The ideological opponents of alcohol, too, will find something to taste: a genuine mate in the calabash, which is traditionally sipped through a silver tubule. Do not forget to be treated to beef dishes, it has long been known that local chefs skillfully manage this type of meat, and be sure to try seafood on the ocean coast.
- Be sure to go shopping, because, in addition to wine, you want something else to bring to the memory of this unique country.
