Another amazing city we visited in Brazil!
In the state of Rio de Janeiro I already showed you the small city of Búzios. Today, I take you to the capital and famous city that bears the same name as the state.
We strolled around the famous beaches and climb 2 points that are a must when you visit this city: Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountain. The 1st is where the monumental sculpture is: Cristo Redentor. And for the 2nd one you can ride in a cable car to the top which makes it a different and fun attraction in the city.
Near the center of the city, there is also the Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow) that we did not get to visit because when we went there the museum wasn’t even built.
Do you know how to differentiate the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana? Look at the mosaics on the sidewalks! Ipanema are like circles and Copacabana are like waves. Remember that these are not the only cities with this beautiful art on the sidewalks, in other cities in Brazil and in Portugal (such as Lisbon) you can find beautiful designs.
