Home to an old Jewish community, the city opened Museu do Holocausto de Curitiba in 2011, the first and only institution of its kind in Brazil. You can take a free guided tour here, or choose to visit the exhibit at your own pace. Many displays are interactive, with original materials, such as numerous audio and visual recordings of survivor testimonies. The museum aims to preserve the memory of the Holocaust in the words of its victims, and to honor those who helped them and fought against hatred, racism, and prejudice. The museum is located inside the newly-built synagogue, which serves as a cultural and religious center of Jewish life here.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.

  • It is essential to visit the Holocaust Museum in Curitiba. This holds true for all age groups. Fulfills the function to report in detail the General chronology of the second world war, including that events have taken in relation to Brazil. Very well organized exhibition (only caveat that if could do is on the revision of the texts, but anything that compromises the understanding). Necessary to make an appointment to visit the site, but is free. A full tour can last around 1 hour.

  • Worth the visit, but has few objects on display, some of them are replicas and other are not so interesting. The light and music make a difference. The tour seemed a bit tiresome. It is necessary to schedule a visit.
