About BoliviaMap is showing Bolivia, the landlocked country in the center of South America, bordered by Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Peru. The country occupies an area about twice the size of Spain, or slightly less than three times the size of the U.S. state of Montana.
Bolivia's geography offers some really interesting features with three distinctive geographical regions: the tropical lowlands (llanos) covered by extensive rain forests. Then there is the transitional sub-Andean, a region of highland valleys in the south central part of Bolivia. The third region are the highlands of the Altiplano (high plateau) with Bolivia's highest peak, the snowcapped Nevado Sajama 6,542 m (21,463 ft), Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America; and the world's largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni.
The country is still more rural than urban, but it has the highest capital cities in the world, the administrative capital La Paz lies at an altitude of 3,640 m and Sucre, the constitutional capital (and its seat of justice), at 2750 m, only surpassed by Ecuador's capital Quito (2850 m). Both of Bolivia's capitals are situated on the Andean Plateau (Altiplano) in the western part of the country.
Bolivia has a population of 11.4 million people (est. 2015). Spoken languages are Spanish (official), Aymara, Quechua, Guaraní and 34 other native languages. Other major cities are Santa Cruz de la Sierra (largest city), El Alto, Cochabamba, Oruro, Tarija, and Potosí.
