Montevideo, the Uruguayan Capital

Montevideo is situated on the north shore of the Río de la Plata, the arm of the Atlantic Ocean that separates the south coast of Uruguay from the north coast of Argentina; Buenos Aires lies 230 kilometres (140 mi) west on the Argentine side.



Uruguay is home to 3.3 million people, of whom 1.8 million live in the capital Montevideo and its metropolitan area. It is bounded on the west by Argentina, on the north by Brazil, and on the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean.

It has the third highest HDI in Latin America (after Argentina and Chile)

Uruguayans are of predominantly European origin; 93.9% reported European ancestry, 4.9% black or African, 1.1% indigenous and 0.1% Asian.

Most Uruguayans of European ancestry are descendants of 19th and 20th century immigrants from Spain and Italy (about one-quarter of the population is of Italian origin) and, to a much lesser degree, from France and Britain.

Political observers consider Uruguay the most secular country in the Americas. It has no official religion; and religious freedom is guaranteed.


From Buenos Aires to Montevideo

Nice interesting thread, it looks very much like a Spanish coastal city, even the enterprises are the same... but it also has that special American light that make it unique
