The neighboring country to Peru, namely Bolivia, has lead a shadowy existence until now on the touristic sector, apart from the only recently popular-turned salt desert of Uyuni (el Salar de Uyuni). Only the ruins of Tiwanaku/Puma Punku and perhaps Copacabana on the shore of the Lake Titicaca would occur the most people in this context. But Bolivia comes up with outstanding places of interest with regard to cultural, historical and prehistoric subjects: La Paz, for example, evolved into a modern metropolis by now, can tell us about the colonial history until nowadays and offers several museums worth seeing focusing on different subjects. Numerous vestiges of early cultures in various parts of the country seem to turn the official history of South America upside down in view of its colonization and, above all, the time of its colonization. Geological singularities in nature parks specially established for them together with dinosaur footprints and animal cemeteries of the tertiary await the interested visitor. You might feel like on another planet on the snow-white surface of the “Salar de Uyuni”, 3600 meters above sea level and surrounded by a bizarre volcanic landscape. A variety of exotic animal and plant species found a new worth-protecting home in nature reserves. But also in relation to culinary delicacies Bolivia has something to offer, for example in the Southern federal state of Tarija, the wonderful wine-growing district of this country. The wine tours have become very popular the last years.
