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. Make the most of your holiday in Brasilia by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Brazil vacation planner.

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
