Every person who has ever heard of Brazil has also heard of the famous city – Rio de Janeiro, which is currently the largest city in the country, and earlier it was the capital. Those who visit Rio for the first time are surprised by the contrasting combination of modern architecture and the poverty of outlying neighborhoods. The greenery of exotic flowers and plants reigns in the city. Flowers grow here wherever possible. Anyone who sees a huge statue of Christ the Savior will immediately understand that this is Rio, since this majestic statue is considered the hallmark of the city. The arm span of the statue is 30 meters. It is located on Mount Corcovado, which is located in the Tijuki National Park, whose area is more than 3 thousand hectares. The old part of Rio is distinguished by its architectural color; there are buildings of the colonial era everywhere. This is where most of the city’s museums are located. among which you should definitely visit the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Folk Art, as well as the Museum of the History of the City, where you can see many interesting exhibits.

The Church of St. Lucia has a unique natural fountain of its kind, according to local residents, the water in this fountain is healing. However, despite the great historical and architectural significance of Rio de Janeiro, its famous beaches brought him great popularity among tourists: Copacabana, Ipanema, etc. Each of these beaches is not just a place of rest for tourists, but also a real place of congestion of the resort and public life of the city .

The capital of Brazil is a rather unusual city of Brasilia. It is located at an altitude of more than 1 km above sea level and was built literally from scratch in four years. The architects of this city designed it in such a way that from above it looks like a bird, in the heart of which most of the administrative and financial institutions are concentrated. Where the bird has wings, there are residential areas of the city, and in the “nose” is the famous Square of the Three Powers. Buildings of ministries with original architecture neatly go from this square, behind these buildings is the Cathedral. Along the entire city (along its “axis”) a modern highway is stretched, which is the main transport artery of the city, and its uniqueness lies in the fact that it has practically no intersections. Residential areas also have original architecture. The windows are huge, and the layout of the buildings is unusual. There are many green spaces and open spaces that are great for walking. On the territory of the city there is an artificially created lake, which was formed by blocking the channel of four rivers with platinum. which are great for walking.

National cuisine of Brazil
According to Calculatorinc, the national cuisine of Brazil was formed from the traditions of three peoples whose cuisines at first glance are poorly compatible: European, African, and Indian cuisine. But for a long time these peoples lived in the same territory, their cuisines harmoniously merged, forming unique culinary traditions. Beans, rice, and cassava are considered the basis of the national cuisine. You can meet these products in almost any dish served, be it a meat or vegetable dish, salads or soups. Brazilians are very fond of using a variety of plants and vegetables in cooking. In local restaurants, which are located almost at every turn, traditional dishes will cost you quite inexpensively. Due to the large number of rivers, lakes, as well as the proximity of the ocean, seafood is very common.
