Brasilia

One might have the impression that Brasilia has a single identity as the political capital of Brazil- a grave mistake. Brasilia attracts tourists from all corners of the world as an important cultural and artistic hub. ..........................................................................................................................................

BrasiliaIf it were to be summed up in one word? Variety. Thanks largely to Oscar Niemeyer and Lúcio Costa the city is a living postcard. Architectural history surrounds you. The Pilot Plane, for example, was designed to resemble an airplane—that this feat was actually pulled off, and with aplomb, gives you an insight into the mad genius of Niemeyer and Costa. No wonder UNESCO designated Brasilia a World Heritage Site in 1987. ..........................................................................................................................................

Yet aside from the magnificent architecture, Brasilia can boast ecological reserves and natural parks suited to those feeling tired of endless strolls around the city streets. Restaurants, bars and cafés are two a penny too. So don’t be put off by the political significance of Brasilia, this is a city to be relished by any type of tourist. >
