    General Information about San Javier City

      The population of San Javier is originated in July of 1913 when a nucleous of Russian immigrants, stimulated by the national government of Dr. José Batle y Ordóñez, settle down there. They grew as a rural community bringing their own tools. 

     

    Along many years, the group of more than 200 families defended the social and cultural traditions brought from Russia. Some of this is preserved in food, dancing and music.

     

    Some buildings and places that remind of the starting period of the colony are a touristic attraction in the present.

     

    Festivities in rememberance of the founding day of the village take place in July. In this opportunity, traditions are renovated and you can enjoy folk activities with songs, dances, crafts' exhibitions, Russian food, etc.
