Brasilia has been the capital city of Brazil since 1960, and was a planned city constructed in just 4 years. The government wanted to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro inland to protect it from sea attacks. Brasilia was built on the Brazilian highlands in the country’s centre western region. The city has the largest urban park in the world, The National Park of Brasilia, as well as many lakes, parks and open spaces to enjoy.
Brasilia may not have the beaches of Rio and the history of Sao Paulo but it is famous for its amazing modern architecture. Jump right in and go see the famous Brazilian Congress, Chamber of Deputies and House of the Parliament. Tourists also flock to the Cathedral of Brasilia which looks like hands reaching to the sky to pray.
