Brasilia

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. Brasilia is in Federal District (DF). Make Brasilia central to your Brazil travel plans using our Brazil online road trip planner .
