Sunny beaches, stone statues of the saviour and passionate carnivals, this is what many people think of Brazil. A country located in South America, not too close to many places, more often than not people read about it on the Internet, but if you like passion and enthusiasm, then it's time to start preparing your "Rio adventure".
Corcovado is an attraction that every visitor to Rio will visit, and this huge statue is the most famous landmark here, which not only appears frequently in many movies but is also a real Rio landmark. The statue of Jesus is very magnificent and imposing, built on a high mountain of 709 meters.
Visitors come to Monte Cristo not only to see the statue of Jesus but also to see the whole of Rio de Janeiro from the top of the mountain, whether it is the city's skyscrapers or its slums.
The Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro, a post-modern church located in the heart of Rio, is a bold departure from traditional European churches in terms of design and materials. As you enter the church, the sunlight slants through the stained glass and the sound of the organ surrounds the quiet church. Whether you are a believer or not, you may want to sit down and feel the unique tranquillity. Tickets for the church can be reserved on the official website.
Escadaria Selarón, this colourful staircase is appearing on many postcards, this is the artist George Selarón, who collected more than 2,000 colourful tiles from more than 60 countries around the world to complete this beautiful staircase.
"In the name of tribute to the Brazilian people", a 250-step ladder was put together with this. The initial tiles came from the construction site, but later the steps caught fire with tiles "donated" by many tourists along the way. Although the place is beautiful, the steps are located around the favelas, where the terrible and even scary security requires visitors to pay attention to their safety.
Feira Nordestina Market is located near the city centre, just a 10-minute drive away. There are up to hundreds of stalls with a variety of food, customs and more, making it a great place for visitors to come and taste local snacks and experience the local culture. Here you can meet bands with passion, humorous street performances, northeastern specialities, fresh ingredients, handicrafts, etc. This is the most authentic market in Rio, with great value for money. Ipanema is a very beautiful beach with stunning sunsets. People gather here to sunbathe, walk their dogs and relax. If you have time, you must remember to bring a few beers and friends to the beach to drink and chat and enjoy the beautiful scenery in front of you. However, since Ipanema is so famous, there are more tourists, so if you want a quiet beach, consider Copacabana Beach. Rio de Janeiro is such a fascinating and dangerous city, but perhaps it is this feature that makes the city even more mysterious and continues to attract large numbers of tourists to visit.
