Copacabana beach is located in Copacabana district of Rio de Janeiro.
I guess, Copacabana is the most famous beach in the world!
One can easily recognize the area by its characteristic promenade (partly seen in today’s picture). Isn’t it a nice pattern?
Some people claim, that the most beautiful beaches in the world are located in Brazil.
I’m not sure, is it true, but there are some very famous Brazilian beaches (not only the ones I’ll show you tomorrow and the day after).
The flag of Brazil (A Auriverde) is one of the better known flags. And there are in Brazil many souvenirs just with the image of the flag. Well, I think the flag is very nice; I’m saying it also as an astronomer. 😉
Sugarloaf is a mountain in Rio de Janeiro, of about half of the height (396 meters) of Corcovado Mountain.
I think, Sugarloaf and Corcovado mountains are must-visit places in Rio; both provide scenic views.
One can take a cable car to reach the summit of Sugarloaf.
Sugarloaf is also popular among the rock climbers.
The statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro (Christ the Redeemer statue) is one of the big (literally big) attractions of Rio. Moreover, the statue is kind of symbol of Rio de Janeiro and even of Brazil!
The statue is 30 metres tall (plus 8 meter pedestal).
It’s located on the Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park.
Is it worth to go there?
-Absolutely! The trip to the top is very nice and the view is beautiful.
If you don’t have so much time in Brazil, go to Rio de Janeiro. You’ll find there (and its vicinity) a bit of almost everything what typical for Brazil, i.e., World Heritage Sites, nature, beaches, jungle, birds, forest, waterfalls, samba, carnival, football and fresh food (with Açaí dessert). 🙂
