Things To Do In Rosario

(x1)  | By: TravelMagma | 1,550 Views | 0 Replies

Rosario is the origin of the Argentinan flag, the hometown of "Che" Guevara, and an important waterway port. The forsaken structures of the stretched riverbank have been transformed and lined with museums, art galleries, recreational parks, and fine dining places. In summer, the river and the beaches become more vibrant and teem with vacationers from all over the world. The city center is a hodgepodge of dazzling twentieth-century structures dominated by typical condos. The Rosarinos (locals of Rosario) are hospitable, practical, and a joy to meet and interact with. Everyone is extremely excited about their hometown pride: Lionel Messi, the brilliant sportsman of World Football. 

Rosario

Rosario is one of the largest cities in Argentina. It is a progressive city situated along the bow of the Parana River about 186 miles from the capital city of Buenos Aires. Rent a kayak and take a journey to see the best river vistas or hit the downtown area that is clamoring with discos, cinemas, big shopping complex, bars and parks that are famous with cyclists. A national landmark on the riverbank respects the city's memorable part as the site where the Argentine banner was first unfurled and shown to the public.

When To Go:

The best time to visit the urban water world of Rosario, Argentina is during the cold months of July up to the second week of August the so-called humid month. Rosario is generally hotter than other Argentinean urban areas, even in the winter season. It has a microclimate known as ‘urban heat’ implying that the city is a bit hotter than its encompassing regions.

Visit Rosario

The temperature difference normally is greater during the evening rather than during the day. It is even larger in winter than in summer and is most obvious when winds are light. Be that as it may, snowfalls are uncommon. Generally, the hottest months last from December to the last weeks of February. The stormy season and most rains are also felt during these months, and the downpour season continues until March.

These are the not to be missed attractions and the things to do in the city of Rosario…

 

Monumento a la Bandera (Flag Monument)

The Monumento a la Bandera (Flag Monument) portrays a high tower sitting on a fountain with mythological figures and the wonders of antiquity.

At night, the great marble staircase leading to the tower and the pools of water is lit and turn into a unique spectacle. After visiting the open monument, the official symbol of the city, take a walk on the riverside. After a while, you will also find a bar where it is nice to grab a bottle of Quilmes (a local beer) or eat a Lomito (Argentina's steak sandwich).

Additionally there is also a museum with flags of several countries of the world, especially those in the Americas. Entrance to the adjacent museum is free.

On La Florida you can walk  and enjoy one of several restaurants and you can also take a boat to go to the islands that are located on the opposite side or pass a couple of hours drinking something at its bar.

La Florida

In the summer season, you can dive or swim through the channels, but not on the main branch of the river as the water is brown and the currents are strong. It is a lovely sandy beach and a pleasant river with not many people and lots of good cafes.

 

Rosario-Victoria Bridge

For 50 km the road is raised and from the platform of the Rosario-Victoria Bridge (to the left and right) you can see a vast delta with small islands which some locals say move according to the rains. This is a paradise of otters and carpinchos. You can see the sun go down and the huge expanse of water change from red to yellow, until when it’s almost dark where the water looks like iced milk. You’ll also see wooden shacks and the occasional horses and cows.

The bridge seems like a surreal landscape from the pit of freezing water. At night, you must see this iron bridge and admire the lights that shine over Rosario. From the bridge, you can enjoy the grandiosity of the river and countless islands that encompass the big city. If you arrived in Victoria on a bright day, you'd have a beautiful view of Rosario from the other side.
