dia de independecia (a bit of history)
Bolivia inherited ambitions and extensive territorial claims that proved disastrous, leading to warfare and defeat. At the time of independence it had a seacoast, a portion of the Amazon basin, and claims to most of the Chaco; in little more than a century all these were lost. The strife-ridden internal history of Bolivia began when the first president, Sucre, was forced to resign in 1828. A steady stream of egocentric caudillos plagued Bolivia thereafter. Andrés Santa Cruz, desiring to reunite Bolivia and Peru, invaded Peru in 1836 and established a confederation, which three years later was destroyed on the battlefield of Yungay.
Although a few presidents, notably José Ballivián, made efforts to reform the administration and improve the economy, the temptation to wholesale corruption was always strong, and honest reform was hard to achieve. The nitrate deposits of Atacama proved valuable, but the mining concessions were given to Chileans. Trouble over them led (1879), during the administration of Hilarión Daza, to the War of the Pacific (see Pacific, War of the). As a result Bolivia lost Atacama to Chile. The next serious loss was the little-known region of the Acre River, which had become valuable because of its wild rubber. After a bitter conflict, Bolivia, under President José Manuel Pando, yielded the area to Brazil in 1903 for an indemnity.

"A unesco cultural heritage since 1991"
Beautiful colonial architecture abounds with many original buildings still intact. All buildings within the central core of the city are either whitewashed or painted white. Sucre still convenes the Supreme Court so it is said this is the city where the real heart of Bolivian goverment is.
"The center of learning"
Sucre has many university`s which enjoy reputation as focal points of progressive thought within the country. Anyhow Sucre has population of 225000 people and lies aproximatly 2800 meters above the sea level.And it carries a name such as The Athens of America with great purpose.
