It is undoubtedly the most popular destination for students looking to study abroad in Argentina. The city's history revolves around Western European immigrants whose influences can be seen all throughout the city in its architecture, art and style. Although Buenos Aires is historically unique, it has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.
