Costa Rica is an interesting country that has many places to see despite its small territory. Visitors of this place will find here large number of nature parks, historical places of interest and various cultural complexes.
The capital of the country is named San Jose. This place attracts travellers by its mild climate and unique atmosphere. At a glance the city may look like an ancient Spanish settlement, because here have survived numerous old houses. However, near them you will see new tall buildings created according to best traditions of modern architecture. The center of the city is defined by the Plaza de la Cultura. Museum of gold, National Theater and the newest Informational Centre are located around this square.
National Museum and Park Espania are just nearby. On weekdays the garden features works of local artists. Besides that tourists are offered to attend an excursion to San Jose Cathedral, see the exhibitions of Museum of Insects, Museum of Criminalistics, and Museum of History of Press. Agree, such choice of cultural facilities is truly amazing and close proximity of the sights opens up huge opportunities for sightseeing and doesn’t create any obstacles for curious travellers.
Shopping lovers will be glad to visit the largest and most colorful markets of the city. Mercado Central Market is considered the largest one. Mercado Bourbon occupies the second place.
