  • The Holocaust Museum of Curitiba is a ride well differentiated. In addition to the advance booking and the restricted hours, security is very high. First forget the traditional museums, full of historical objects exposed. This museum is more instructive and explanation: many audios, videos of interviews, reading. For those who like history, is a full plate. It's amazing the wealth in the details, and the depth in the content of the Museum. in the end, it's an experience of reflection. recommend

  • The Museum presents stories that cannot be forgotten and that must be transmitted to generations. Highlights the fight against intolerance in all aspects. If availability is worth visiting.

  • Museum with items from Holocaust survivors. Place to visit to understand what hatred anger and intolerance was able to do with humanity. Rescues a lot of emotion and it is impossible to remain indifferent to what you see and hear through the accounts of survivors. That can never occur again this brutality with the human being.

  • My visit to the Holocaust Museum was a transformative experience, I've always been in love with stories and even more for the history of the great wars, the visit to the Museum was very striking, the term "Holocaust stories are stories of lives" is what it could mean the visit. To make the visit a registration is necessary and carry out the schedule with at least 48 hours in advance, but recommend that the visit be scheduled with approximately of 1 month in advance because the Museum has a very large demand and for being free and possess a limited access is well-attended.

  • Despite being a place you go out extremely distressed and in pain in the heart by being presented the sensations and sad stories of this moment in history and beyond, other stories in which humanity was shown to be cruel, also are presented to people who have shown how There may still be goodness in the world and who resisted to stay at well. Valley super a visit.

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.
