The aim of this paper is to introduce the less known part of the Río de la Plata: Uruguay. The main question is whether a country relatively young and of tiny dimensions has its own identity. For that, after giving some theoretical information, we present a brief history of this country and the results of two surveys. The first done a couple of years ago for the Spanish newspaper El País and the other conducted recently among a group of Argentines. It is not a professional survey, rather an invitation to reflect on the process of the creation of the Uruguayan identity, its principal points and relations between two apparently very close countries, separated by the same river.
