The first Portuguese explorers that arrived at Guabanara bay were amazed because
of its extraordinary beauty. Rio de Janeiro grew up to the sides of the bay,
the Marvelous City. Fantasy name to a perfect combination of sea, earth, climate
A nice mixture of the Indian, White and Black cultures, fermented in a magnificent natural scenery. Cosmopolitan city, Brazil’s capital for almost 200 years, Rio de Janeiro is one of the most main culture centers on the country, with a lot of cinemas, theaters, museums, rooms of concert, show houses, art galleries and libraries. Big gastronomical zone, the restaurants on the city offer a lot of options, from international cookery to typical dishes from all Brazilian regions.
Very few cities in the world are able to concentrate, in a very cool way, all the little icons that makes life a party: beach, sun, samba, frozen beer, tasteful food, football, beautiful people, streets with light curves that lead to little tropical forests. Rio de Janeiro is an intense modernity, and it’s also a quotidian meeting with the past. The baroque art found in churches and monasteries, the deco art found in very preserved residential facades, the modernist architecture from 1950’s: all of these elements make Rio a witness of its own history.
Rio is a city that echoes, vibrates. With the sound of surdos, tabors, tambourines and cuicas, that mark the compass of Carnival. With the explosion of a goal in Maracanã stadium, where 170 thousand people support their football teams.
With the roaring of the waves in the rocks and with the colourful crack of fireworks in the Réveillon. Rio pulsates in a permanent celebration to life.
