Rio de Janeiro
The Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro is known in Portuguese as the Cidade Maravilhosa, or Wonderful City in English. Rio de Janeiro is the most visited city in the southern hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, carnival celebrations, samba, and beaches such as Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. Some of the most famous landmarks in addition to the beaches include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, atop Corcovado mountain, named one of the New seven wonders of the world, Sugerloaf mountain with its cable car; the Sambodromo a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during Carnival; and Marcana stadium, one of the worlds largest football stadium. Rio de Janeiro will host the 2016 Summer Olympics, the first South American city to host the event, and will host the final match for 2014 FIFA World Cup.
From its bustling beaches to the outrageous February festival, Rio de Janeiro is a city that knows how to entertain, day or night. Travel through Tijuca National Park to Corcovado Mountain's iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Take the cable car up the Sugar Loaf for more views. Explore Brazilian history at the Municipal Theatre, and former presidential residence, Catete Palace. Try hang gliding or surfing, or see a match at Maracana Soccer Stadium. Or just chill with a caipirinha on the sand.
With the seductive sounds of samba as their rallying cry, Rio’s residents, known ascariocas, have perfected the art of living well. From the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema to the tops of scenic outlooks of Corcovado and Pão de Açúcar to the dance halls, bars and open-air cafes that proliferate the city, cariocaslive for the moment without a care in the world. This idea of paradise has enchanted visitors for centuries, and there are dozens of ways to be seduced. You can surf great breaks off Prainha, hike through Tijuca’s rainforests, sail across Guanabára, dance the night away in Lapa or just people-watch on Ipanema Beach.
While Rio has its share of serious problems, there are plenty of residents – expats included – who wouldn’t dream of relocating. It’s no coincidence Christo himself sits arms outstretched across the city, either.
