Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Rio de Janeiro is a splendour of bright colours and eternal carnival, ocean and endless sunshine. The city is located on the shores of Guanabara Bay, and is one of the most beautiful in South America. Nature has generously endowed this area, Brazilians believe that such a beautiful land to them granted by God himself. It seems as if the inhabitants of this city always have a holiday to the unceasing sounds of samba.
Who has not dreamed of climbing to the top of Corcovado Mountain and looking at Christ the Redeemer or diving into the emerald waters of the Atlantic at the famous Copacabana? In Rio de Janeiro, dreams become reality. Here, the elation is mixed with the anticipation of danger from the gloomy favelas, and the light-headedness of caipirinhas with the gentle nights. It’s all Rio.
