Rosario, the third largest city in Argentina, is located halfway between Buenos Aires and Córdoba – and exactly on the banks of the Paraná River. This special location makes Rosario not only an important economic but also a popular excursion destination: the 15 km long sandy beach as well as the adjacent parks, many beautiful bicycle paths and various water sports facilities attract tourists in summer – and offer you the perfect balance to your internship or volunteer service.
At night, Rosario is characterized by the lively charm of the many “restobares” (a combination of café and bar) and nightlife options. Culture enthusiasts will get their money’s worth here in the impressive theater “El Circulo”. Visit Argentina Rosario!
Rosario is located in the province of Santa Fé and about 300 km northeast of Buenos Aires. Rosario is also an important cultural and educational center on a national and international level. Thus, the city was chosen by the “Real Academia Española” (monitoring and nomination of the Spanish language) and by “Cervantes” (Spanish Cultural Institute) for the third international Language Congress.
The Río Paraná is located directly on the outskirts of the city and is especially interesting for water sports fans. Kitesurfing, canoeing, windsurfing and water skiing are just a few examples of enjoying the Río Paraná. On the sandy beach of the Florida district you can go swimming and enjoy the sun and the beautiful panorama. In water taxis, several islands can be visited from Rosario in just 10-15 minutes, which are popular destinations for the Rosarinos (this is how the inhabitants are called Rosarios), especially on weekends.
In Rosario, for the first time in Argentine history, the national flag was raised. The “Monumento a la Bandera” (monument of the national flag) is located directly on the Río Paraná for viewing. On February 27, 2012, the 200th anniversary of the creation of the Argentine national flag took place at the Monumento a la Bandera. You can get more information about the topic here.
A few years ago, the largest and most modern casino in South America, the City Center Rosario, opened in Rosario and invites you to a casino of superlatives.
The nightlife in Rosario leaves nothing to be desired, because there are numerous bars, restaurants and discos. Especially recommended are the bars and restaurants along the Río Paraná, which have a special flair, especially at night.
