Overview

La Paz is the seat of the country’s government. It is located on the western side of Bolivia at an elevation of roughly 3,650 m above sea level. It is, de facto, the world’s highest administrative capital. While the official capital of Bolivia (and its seat of justice) is Sucre, La Paz has more government departments. The city sits in a bowl surrounded by the high mountains of the altiplano. Sucre is located in the south-central part of the country. Sucre lies at an elevation of 2,810 meters (9,214 feet). This relatively high altitude gives the city a cool temperate climate year-round. Known for the architecture as churches and cathedrals. Uyuni is a city in the southwest of Bolivia. There is little agriculture in the area because water supplies are scarce and somewhat saline. It was founded in 1890 as a trading post. The town has an extensive street-market. It lies at the edge of an extensive plain at an elevation of 3,700 m (12,139 ft) above sea level, with more mountainous country to the east. One of the major tourist attractions of the area is an antique train cemetery. It is located 3 km outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks. The town served in the past as a distribution hub for the trains carrying minerals on their way to the Pacific Ocean ports. The train lines were built by British engineers who arrived near the end of the 19th century and formed a sizable community in Uyuni. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed, partly due to the mineral depletion. Many trains were abandoned thereby producing the train cemetery. Data Base: Wikipedia
