Paraguay is a wonderful country full of beautiful sights and interesting culture. Below are 10 of the most amazing photos of Paraguay, found on Flickr, for you to enjoy!
1. The Paraguay River
This stunning image captures an array of reds, yellows and oranges as the sun sets over the Paraguay River. Like something from a dream, the river reflects the incredible cloud formation and enticing colour scheme. This beautiful river stretches through Brazil, Bolivia, and Argentina as well as running through the centre of Paraguay.
- 2. Palacio de los Lopez
This wonderfully framed photograph is of the Palacio de los López, home to the President and also the seat of Paraguay’s government. Oozing with majesty and extravagance, the Palacio de los López is captured here in striking contrast to the black night sky.
3. Vintage Train
This vintage and slightly decrepit train looks worn and yet still homely with the white chair outside it. The train is framed wonderfully to the left allowing a shot right through to the outside down the right hand side.
4. Itaipu Dam
This incredible dam allows water through 5 or 6 times a year, so you have to make sure you visit just at the right time, because it is truly an impressive sight. This amazing image captures the water tumbling into the lake at great speed creating lots of spray on impact.
5. 200 year old tree!
This awesome tree was named a national natural monument of Paraguay in 1980 and is simply incredible. Over 200 years old, this tree has witnessed so much history it’s unimaginable. This simple image captures the tree in all its glory.
The talented photographer captures this idyllic sunset beautifully, from the silhouettes of the trees in the foreground to the golden lining of the clouds further back. With amazing sunsets like this frequenting Paraguay some describe it as a mini-paradise.
7. Children Playing
This great photo captures two little children enjoying playing with tires racing through the streets of Encarnacion, Paraguay. Obviously it’s not one of the tourist attractions, but the reality of this photograph speaks volumes about the poorer areas in Paraguay.
8. Salto de Monday
This wonderful waterfall is often deserted and an amazing place to visit in Paraguay. The relaxing water rushes over the rocks and entices you with its twists and turns down towards the river.
9. Yellow Bird Apache Dancers
This colourful photograph captures the Yellow Bird Dancers entertaining a small village in the heart of Paraguay. The rural feel emanates through the dry landscape and shell of a barn behind the people, who seem to be enthralled by the action.
10. Gentle Sunset
This stunning sunset is made up of gentle pinks and yellows reflecting off the river. The small silhouette of a boat far out on the water is a reminder of how large an expanse it is and you can just see a hint of green from the land behind it.
Above are just 10 amazing photographs of Paraguay found on Flickr, but there are many more of this wonderful country, so why not check them out for yourself?
