Universidad de Montevideo
Located between the Rio de la Plata and the Atlantic Ocean, Uruguay has nearly 500 kilometers of sandy beaches. Montevideo is home for nearly two million people and boasts a unique style. The city's architecture blends colonial, European and modern influences. The Old Town, a small peninsula near the metropolitan port, offers many examples of the country's colonial past. Not far from this modern city is an amazing landscape of hilly meadows and rivers. The world famous resort town of Punte del Este is only a short drive or bus ride from the capital. Due to the high value of the dollar, Uruguay is an extremely inexpensive place to live and study.
