Bahia Blanca is located some 600km south of Buenos Aires, and was settled by people from Brač, Šibenik, Imotski, Istra, and Slavonia. For them, the Park of the Croatian Immigrant, given to them by the cities authorities, is of particular importance. It contains a children's playground, and on the 21st anniversary of Croatia’s independence, a memorial plate for Croatian immigrants was placed in the park.
