Laranjeiras Stadium, Rio de Janeiro

3.9
While no longer active, you can still appreciate the rich of Laranjeiras Stadium, whether you like football or not. Home to the Fluminense Football Club, who, incidentally, you might find training on the pitch during your visit, the stadium is one of the oldest in Brazil. It was here that the Brazilian national team played--and won--their first game, and over the years it has hosted several significant Latin American championships, prizes for which you will find gleaming in the Trophy Room.

  • Today the historic Stadium works basically as the official seat of the Fluminense, and where are the training of teams, and various other events. Since 2003 are not performed official matches for security reasons (vandalism of twisted). Holds since 2004 the Stadium name Manoel Schwartz named after victorious former Fluminense in the 1980, whose campaign has as its biggest title the Brazilian championship of 1984. The stadium comes from the field of Guanabara Street, where in 1904 was held the first Interstate game against Sao Paulo, kicking off the new sport of the city square. Years later in May 1919 at the same location of the old Field was built/opened the Estádio das Laranjeiras, with the lawn in different position, had as initial starting the "6 x 0 Chile Brazil"; and the first match Fluminense 4 x 1 Vila Isabel in July 1919.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
