Túnel Subfluvial Uranga-silvestre Begnis - Other Activity Paraná - Argentina

Travelers wending between Paraná city and Santa Fe are suddenly plunged into the depths of the Túnel Subfluvial Uranga-Silvestre Begnis, beneath the Río Paraná. For almost 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) there is no sound except the steady turn of wheels as buses, trucks and cars go from one bank to the other. Curious travelers may drop by the Túnel Subfluvial for an hour-long tour that begins with a video about the tunnel's history and specifications. Then visitors are taken to the control room to see how it all runs so smoothly.
