Reasons To Visit Brasilia
Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, is best known for its modernist architecture and was built in the shape of a giant bird, making it one of the quirkier destinations around the globe. One of the first things you can do is head into the Three Powers Square and see the seats of Brazilian government – Congress, the Supreme Court and the Presidential Palace. If you fancy a break from the city atmosphere then escape into Paranoa Lake, a beautiful area with many cafés and restaurants by the lake. The city hosts many fascinating cultural events and festivals each year including many public art festivals out on the streets, so you will always find something interesting going on.
