Rio de Janeiro
THE “MARVELOUS CITY”
Rio de Janeiro is a cosmopolitan city. The second major city in Brazil, it has a population of about 6 million people. Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca are just some of the distinguished beaches of Rio. Christ the Redimer, Sugar Loaf Hills, Arpuador, Tijuca Forest, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Maracanã Stadium, among others, are nice and well known touristic spots in Rio. As it was the first capital of Brazil, since the Imperial Period, Rio is also important from the historical point of view.
The gastronomy of Rio is complete, with options for almost all of the world’s cuisine. Mobility in the city is quite good, counting on public transportation (wide busses and metro integrated systems). By hosting two major events recently, the Football World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016, Rio de Janeiro is, undoubtly, completely prepared for hosting any type or size of event.
