Come and see this fascinating miniature city with this tour of the Republic of the Children, one of the first theme parks in South America.
Republic of the Children Tour
We'll meet at 1 pm outside the Gonnet train station in La Plata. From there we'll walk down to the Republic of the Children (República de los Niños in Spanish), an educational park that was inaugurated in 1951.
Once inside, we'll begin a guided tour of this charming place. We'll explore the tiny streets and admire the architecture of the mini buildings. Did you know that they say that Walt Disney himself was inspired by this place for his theme parks?
A parliament, a courthouse, a church, a theatre, an airport... The Republic of the Children was built the Eva Perón Foundation with the aim of reproducing a city on a small scale so young children could learn about democracy.
At the end of the tour, we'll have some time to enjoy a picnic lunch and we'll get the chance to try some typical Argentian delicacies: alfajores, sponge cake and tea. After lunch, we'll take you back to the starting point, where we'll drop you off at around 3:30 pm.
If it rains on the day of the tour, the activity will be cancelled and you will be refunded.
