This building looks great from the outside but it is not permitted to enter or get that close. I happened to be there when they were preparing for a change of PM so there were an impressive array of flags outside. There is a nice...More

The best impression one gets from this building is the British influence in original infrastructure, but more modern government buildings tend to be depressing Soviet-influenced architecture.

The government palace is located in the historical center, close to the Paraguay river. Unfortunately, due to security, one cannot get to close to it, so I had to take pictures from a reasonable distance. However, at the back of the palace there is a...More

On dark time better to look around only in company of locals whom you know. On day time all the places I have been are quiet and safe enough. For travelling inside country they do have quit nice buses.
