Brasilia

4.2
World heritage site · Architectural Buildings · Piers & Boardwalks
Capital of Hope
Although it lacks the cultural flair of Rio de Janeiro and the massive urban sprawl of Sao Paulo, Brasilia holds a fascinating place in the tapestry of Brazil. The national capital since its completion in 1960, this futuristic, centrally located city has experienced a rapid growth in population; today many of its 2.5 million residents work in government or administrative jobs. Designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, Brasilia was built in a staggering 41 months, and resembles a bird or aeroplane from above. Getting around on foot during your Brasilia vacation is almost impossible, as the widely spread city was designed for motor vehicles, not pedestrians. However, good public transport helps you navigate your way around most of the city independently. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Brasilia and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
