A Central American Country
The capital of Cost Rica is San Jose.The city is distinguished by its Spanish colonial architecture, such as the ornate neoclassical National Theatre of Costa Rica, at downtown’s Plaza de la Cultura. Soccer is the national sport—or even national mania—of Costa Rica. Like soccer, bicycling, boxing, and wrestling are popular working-class sports. Basketball, volleyball, and tennis are played mostly by upper-and upper-middle-class boys, and tennis and golf are played by their fathers. Costa Rica has little in the way of native arts and crafts. Costa Rican cuisine is known for being fairly mild, with high reliance on fresh fruits and vegetables. Rice and black beans are a staple of most traditional Costa Rican meals, often served three times a day.
This museum is located in the capital. The walls still have bullet holes from the civil war that broke out in 1948. Some of the artifacts you can find in the museum are cannons and guns from the pre-columbian times. The museum is organized thematically in a counter clockwise direction from the entrance with artifacts related to Costa Rica's geological, colonial, archaeological, religious and modern history.
The national library is located in the capital and was founded in 1888, Costa Rica is an amazing country with a rich and wonderfully progressive history and the National Library has done a grand job making sure that everyone can learn about it. You can’t check items out from the closed collections as they are more for study and research, you can listen to music and use items under supervision.
Some of the most interesting things on the city square in San Jose Costa Rica are the National theater and the Jade museum but there are over 50 other attractions.
