    The place is extremely green. Ideal for those who enjoy diverse vegetation, in addition to the beautiful building.

    Being in the city you go into a place full of vegetation along a path of tables between large plants and trees. You get to a lake and it seems that you are not in a city. Simply amazing

    Away from the center of the city it is worth visiting this small park by the curious path of arrival and the surprise at the end of it. The Park is located in a university environment installation.

    I've been on a weekend (22/07/2017) revisiting the Unilivre and I was disappointed to realize that the location does not press more for the safety of their patrons. Myself, I just twisting the knee for having held the leg in a will on the way, the bad state of conservation of the site ... I hope that's seen more carefully by those responsible.

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.
