Walking in Montevideo Uruguay at Night

Walking in Montevideo Uruguay

I got to Montevideo by mistake. My flight got cancelled, so I had to stay over one night for the next flight going to New York City. Walking in Montevideo in Uruguay at night felt safe to me. I enjoyed it.

Initially, my walk started at the Artigas statue located in Plaza Independencia towards Avenida 18 de Julio at about 10pm(22h). For instance, there were many people sitting at the plazas around the city. People sitting were mainly chatting, having mate or just relaxing. I felt safe and I even went to one of the supermarkets that was still open. I enjoyed the little ‘Kiosco’ that were close, but opened the next morning.

Montevideo Architecture

In the heart of Montevideo, Uruguay, every cobblestone whispers tales of history, and every architectural marvel is a silent witness to the city’s rich narrative. In addition, the buildings, adorned with a blend of colonial elegance and modern splendor, create a symphony of emotions that resonate through the streets.

Moreover, the coastal promenade, La Rambla, unveils a different aspect of Montevideo’s architecture. Here, modern skyscrapers stand tall, framing the endless horizon of the Rio de la Plata. Simultaneously, the juxtaposition of sleek glass structures against the backdrop of the sea creates a breathtaking panorama, stirring emotions of awe and admiration.

Specifically, Montevideo’s architecture is not merely a collection of buildings; it’s a visual narrative of resilience, progress, and cultural richness. For example, the iconic Palacio Salvo that graces the skyline to the charming colonial houses lining the streets of Barrio Sur, each structure whispers stories of a city that has gracefully embraced the passage of time. In Montevideo, every architectural detail is a brushstroke on the canvas of emotions, inviting you to immerse yourself in the city’s captivating embrace.

Walking in Montevideo can appear to be a challenge at first sight. But, it was really pleasant to me. I got a chance to expierience daily life in Uruguay at rush hour. For example, the people going to the supermarket and waiting for the bus. I even got a chance to buy my own mate at the market. The cost was more than half the price compared to duty-free shops at the airport.
