With one million inhabitants, theaters, art museums, national monuments and two professional soccer teams, Rosario has a very cosmopolitan feel. Located on the Paraná River 180 miles from Buenos Aires, Rosario is an important urban center for regional development within Argentina. The city is an industrial, commercial and business hub with a strategic location regarding MERCOSUR (Southern Common Market).
The commercial area, filled with shopping centers, pubs and sophisticated restaurants, is a great place to spend your time. You can enjoy Rosario's rich history while visiting this modern city's beautiful parks and riverside, including Florida Beach. Due to the high value of the dollar against the Argentine peso, Argentina is an extremely inexpensive place to live and study.
