La Paz is the largest and most important city of the South American Republic of Bolivia. With its approximately 1.8 million inhabitants, the city extends into the highland plateau of Bolivia, the vast flatland called the Altiplano lying at 3800-4100 m. La Paz is an interesting city that combines ancient tradition and modern elements. Ever since the Spanish rule in the 19th century, it has been a major trading centre of the country.
