Paraguay – an island with land around it
Paraguay is located in the middle of South America. With 406,752 km², the country is approx. 14% larger than the Federal Republic of Germany, but with almost 7,000,000 inhabitants, it has less than 1/10 as many inhabitants as Germany. Paraguay is essentially surrounded by Brazil and Argentina. Only the west still borders Bolivia.
We have already visited Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela – Paraguay is completely different:
It is known through the Jesuits and the Mennonites who settled (te) n in Paraguay. The story is clearly marked by the Triple Alliance War (Guerra contra la Triple Alianza, 1864-70) and the Chaco War (Guerra del Chaco, 1932-35). The country seems indescribable. It’s like an island in the middle of South America.
