A little history
Buenos Aires is a coastal city, founded on the banks of the Río de la Plata. In the XIX century citizens used to enjoy the riverbank to bathe and cool off. Years passed and Buenos Aires began to turn its back on the river. Pollution increased and people stopped swimming in the river.
Fortunately, some years ago the state started to work again to give the protagonism to the river and so the citizens can enjoy again the great Rio de la Plata.
