Rio de Janeiro means the river of January; the beautiful seaside city is nicknamed Rio. When we think of Brasil, the first thing that comes into our mind is Rio Carnival and the statue of Christ The Redeemer; both are here in Rio. The location of Rio is so exotic that it bred a culture of partying, football, and Samba.
If I could, I would spend a whole year in Rio, soak in all the culture and maybe take part in the Rio carnival. There is so much to do when you are in Rio; life becomes full of possibilities.
Christ the Redeemer
Perched on the summit of Corcovado, Christ the Redeemer is located at the elevation of 706M. The statue began construction in 1922 and completed it in 1931. On the base of the figure is a chapel, you can get married inside, how romantic it would be to tie the knot here? If you want to avoid crowds of tourists and enjoy the view with peace, visit in the early morning hours.
Copacabana is well known among international tourists. The long stretch of the beach keeps the heritage of Rio alive. At the beach, you can catch a volleyball game, live music, and of course, the exotic visitors taking a sunbath. The visitors are most happy when they take a dip in the sea.
The Maracanã was the very stadium where the opening and closing ceremony of the 2016 Olympics took place. To play a game at this great venue is the dream of every football player in the world. Brazilian football is on the next level, if you are into football, watch a game, live life to the fullest.
