Argentina is one of the largest countries in Latin America. The country is located in several natural zones: subtropical, plateau, steppe, cooler areas. Initially, before the arrival of the Spaniards in the 16 th century, there lived numerous Indian tribes. For several centuries Spanish conquerors tried to convert them into slavery. But proud Indians died, but refused to become slaves. Then the Spaniards killed the original inhabitants, and their lands were declared a property of the Spanish crown. Conquerors believed that these lands conceal huge deposits of silver, therefore, have named the country \"Argentina\" (from Latin- \"Argentum\" - \"silver\"). Silver was not founded, but the name of the country remained. The most valuable, as it turned out –are vast expanses of fertile land, pastures. The country went through a rapid historical development, numerous revolutions, wars for independence, dictatorship, military conflicts with neighbors. In the first quarter of the 19th century it has became independent. In the early 80-ies of the 20 th century, Argentina was at war with Britain, trying to prove their rights to the Falkland Islands, but lost. In the 90 years of the 20 th century democratic forces came to power in the country, and political situation in the country has stabilized. The population of Argentine is people from different countries of Europe, but part of the population is people of mixed parentage (mixed with descendants of Spaniards). In Argentina, there are mountain peaks and many kilometers of beaches, endless steppes, lush forests, waterfalls of amazing beauty, ski resorts and huge megacities. Buenos Aires, the capital of the country, is its centre in all respects, except of geographical location. It is probably the most European city in South America. This is a very elegant town with many interesting buildings of the nineteenth century. There are about 120 museums. The land of Pampa - thousands of square miles of tall grass, hundreds of farms and tiny towns with historic centers, which remind colonial time. To the west, Pampa smoothly turn into foothills of the Andes, creating picturesque landscapes of cliffs, canyons, cacti and majestic mountain peaks. There are many small but very picturesque towns that worth visiting. One of the most famous and popular destinations in Argentina is Iguazu National Park. It is considered to be one of the modern wonders of the world, because of 275 waterfalls. Here is the continent largest Iguazu Falls. The southern part of Argentina is one of the most picturesque places on the planet. The main attraction of the area is San Carlos de Bariloche resort, which is deservedly called \"Argentine Switzerland”. In winter it is considered to be one of the most popular ski resorts and in summer - the beautiful water resort, as it lies on the shores of picturesque Lake Nahuel Huapi. Patagonia is the country\'s south, a wild and desolate plain, which occupies almost the entire southern mainland. The climate here is severe, precipitation is relatively small. Noteworthy town of El Calafate and Lake Lago Argentino, the lowest point of the continent - Gran Bajo de San Julián, located 105 meters below sea level, Cave de las Manos-Pintadas with handprints once lived here protoindian tribes and many other
