City Ville Guide

which is the capital of Brazil since 21st April 1960, and its suburbs has a population of one million seven hundred thousand inhabitants.

Rio de Janeiro
relinquished its title of capital to Brazilia, but remains the second biggest and splendid town of Brazil with its 6 million inhabitants.
Rio continues to be the capital of the legendary Brazil of beaches, carnival, football and samba, and is its cultural centre, its brand image, its synthesis, its sounding box.

The town oscillates between luxury and misery, the population is easy going and full of the joy of living.

Over the last 10 years the GDP of the State of Rio has quadrupled, the average salary has tripled, consumption has boomed. 59% of the population are middle class.

The mayor, Luiz Paulo Condo, who is an urban architect, has made it safe and pleasant for the population to be out on the streets again by cleaning up the centre of the old town and the public squares, and by improving the lighting on the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.
The rebirth of the town is attracting crowds of investors.
Since a few years, thanks to the dynamism of the new administration, Rio can brag of really having one of the most beautiful sea fronts in the world.
Promenades have been re-designed for the comfort of pedestrians and an amazing cycle lane goes all the way around the beaches, from Leblon to Flamengo, passing via Ipanema, Copacabana, Botafogo and up to the Santos Dumont airport.
During the day the beaches are everybody's meeting place, with no distinction of age or class. At night the beaches are lit and people play volleyball or football.
