Culture Uruguay has an impressive legacy of artistic and literary traditions, especially for its small size. The contribution of its alternating conquerors and diverse immigrants has resulted in native traditions that integrate this diversity. Uruguay has centuries old remains, fortresses of the colonial era. Its cities have a rich architectural heritage and an impressive number of writers, artists, and musicians. The Uruguayan people revel in the art of theater as well as many musical and dance traditions. A lot of these have roots in Europe, but have evolved with their own twists of local color whether they involve plays, concerts, exhibitions, or festivals. The tango has an entire sub-culture centered on movement, music, and lyrics. Tango is love, hate, and passion. Tango transforms ones existential problems into pure energy and joy. And in Uruguay, people love to Tango and they Tango well! Inland, we find the culture of the gaucho, the cowboys of South America. To this day, gauchos wear the same traditional dress as generations ago. Complete with its own music and dance; gaucho is about pride and dignity, individual integrity, and national identity.

The country has an impressive legacy of artistic and literary traditions, especially for its small size. The contribution of its alternating conquerors, Spain and Portugal , and diverse immigrants - Italians Germans Swiss Russians ... Jews and Armenians , among others- has resulted in traditions that integrate this diversity with Native American elements. Uruguay has centuries-old remains and fortresses of the colonial era. Its cities have a rich architectural heritage and an impressive number of writers, artists, and musicians. Carnival and candombe are the most important examples of African influence by slaves , as well as Umbanda religious beliefs and practices.

    Uruguay Society and Culture
    Contemporary Uruguay society and culture is a blend of European settler culture and the social mores of the native South American tribes. Uruguayan society has a large middle class.
    The Uruguay society and culture is characterized by comparatively liberal and free thinking, when compared with its more strait laced South American neighboring states. The Uruguay culture has a surprisingly large number of literary and artistic traditions compared to its small size. The tango is an intrinsic part of Uruguayan culture. It is a joyful mix of music, lyrics and artful movement.
    The Uruguayan society has class distinctions. The upper class consists of the economically powerful businessmen, politicians and the landed gentry of ranchers. The lower class is a mix of domestic workers, peasants and blue collar workers. The middle classes of Uruguay include white collar workers, professionals, and some farmers. The upper classes constitute about 5% of the total population.

    Cuisine Having an economy that has livestock as one of its mainstays, it makes sense that beef plays a predominant role in Uruguayan cuisine. Uruguayans probably consume more beef than any other people in the world. Churrasco (grilled steak) is said to be the national dish. Parrillada is a beef platter and considered another national dish. Chivitos are also popular; they are hot steak sandwiches topped with bacon, eggs, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes. Now that sounds like a mouthful! In any event, one has not completed the Uruguayan tradition without attending one of those famous barbeques with an open pit fire. Uruguayans also serve traditional Spanish food. Puchero is a meat stew considered a delicacy. And of course the large Italian influence yields a myriad of pasta dishes, lasagna and pizza being Uruguayan favorites. Club sandwiches and spicy sausage on rolls also claim a place as favorite Uruguayan snacks.
    Uruguay also offers some awesome seafood including Mussels and many types of tasty saltwater and fresh water fish.

    Uruguay : Culture
    Uruguay was once known as the "Switzerland of South America" as a result of its relative governmental stability, advanced level of economic development, and social peace. Indeed, in the creation of a welfare state, it was far ahead of Switzerland during the first half of the 20th century. Starting in the 1950s, Uruguay's economy began to stagnate, and the oncevaunted welfare state became increasingly poor. Commentators talked of the "Latin Americanization" of Uruguay as it descended from the ranks of the developed nations to the level of the Third World. Political and social unrest eventually culminated in the military coup of 1973; by then the case for seeing Uruguay as very different from the rest of Latin America was largely undermined. In sum, Uruguayan society in 1990 presented a contradictory picture of advanced social indicators and declining economic status. In many ways, it remained unlike other Latin American and Third World countries. Artigas Canelones Cerro Largo Colonia ... AskBabyNames @ 2008 MapZones

    The majority of Uruguay's citizens are Roman Catholics, at sixty percent. Most Roman Catholics baptize their children but a small number attend church regularly. Another popular religion is to be Protestant, and there are Jewish Uruguayans living primarily in Montevideo , the nation's capital. Some people of Uruguay even have faith in Afro-Brazilian religions such as Macumba and Umbanda, showing a truly diverse array of religion in Uruguay culture.
