Volga Germans: cultural rendezvous in Entre Ríos
The Germans of the Volga are, for the most part, Argentinian citizens with a German descent that give a different tone and color to Entre Ríos. It started with Germans who left for Russia and settled on the bank of the Volga River. They established their community there for 100 years until the beginning of the “Russification” that forced them to leave. Many returned to Germany, but a group of them, found their destiny in Argentina, more precisely in Between Rivers.
The banks of the Paraná River were the chosen place to install their villages. They promoted agricultural and livestock development in the region, also in other areas such as tourism opening very visited spas of Entre Ríos. Therefore, if you visit Paraná, Crespo or Diamante, you have a brilliant option to enjoy the German colonies.
What makes them flashy?
Immigrants there are many in our country, but the Germans are distinguished by their struggle to maintain their culture and adaptation to Argentina. It’s been over 100 years since the start of their journey, but the generations who continue to seek to prevent their past being from losing in time.
How do they keep their values and culture?
When they arrived in Entre Ríos nobody spoke Spanish, only German, they needed to adapt, but without leaving behind their customs. Music, art, social activities are the main practices that intensively revive their German origins and keep their language alive.
An attraction in first person
We found the villages very close to each other, this makes your visit easier. Each one has a different proposal. In some cases, the highlights religious culture; in others, food: and in others, music German. This community in Entre Ríos is the explicit example of a conjunction unique cultural.
