Paraguay is an introvert country that borders on Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina. During a large part of this century it was one of the most notorious and durable police states, but it now is gradually getting used to being a republic.

The Paraguay River divides the country into two contrasting regions, in the west, the Gran Chaco, or Paraguay Occidental, and in the east, Paraguay proper, or Paraguay Oriental.

The country has a relaxed capital, Asuncion on the east side of the river and which is about the only real city in the country. Its the both political and economic center of the land. Most of its architecture dates back to the nineteenth century, when some charismatic dictators established the Paraguayan identity. Other cities that have their roots in history are: Conception, General Eugenio A Garay, Perdo Juan Caballero and Coronel Oviedo

The countrys main sights are the countless waterfalls, like the Iguazu Falls or the Guaira Falls, that are really worth a visit, but also some impressive Jesuit missions, several national parks and of course the plains swamps and forests of Gran chaco. Here you can also experience the real country life of the Paraguayan cowboys that breed one of the lands mayor sources of income.
