The capital of Uruguay and home to almost half of its population, Montevideo is a quirky, lively city with an exciting culture and a wonderful multicultural flavour. Extending 20km from east to west, the city encompasses an industrial port, exclusive seaside suburbs, a historic downtown business district, elegant Art Deco buildings, and gritty old skyscrapers. Montevideo has a strong tradition of music, theatre, and the arts in general. Enjoy the elegance of classic theatre, the vibrancy of tango, and the buzz of beachfront discos. A strong multicultural flavour derives from the presence of numerous foreign cultural centres and the administrative headquarters of Mercosur, South America’s leading trading bloc.
