There is a city in every country that purports to be the best and most comfortable
for living. Do you know that such a place in Brazil is Curitiba? Moreover, it
is reasonably considered the most environmentally friendly city in the world.
Curitiba has to be thankful for this status to God (the name of the city is
translated from Portuguese like "pine land") and city mayor Jaime
Lerner. During the 12 years of his mayoralty he has raised the standard of life
in the city up to the highest level.
The most environmentally friendly city in the world: Curitiba
The year of its foundation is 1693, which means it is 320 years old. Seventeen
white colonists narrowed the warlike Guarani Indians, settled on the land and started
breeding cattle. The town acquired city status in 1842, in 1853 it became the
capital of the new Brazilian state of Parana. Soon resettlers from Europe –
Poles, Ukrainians, Russian, Germans and Italians – poured in. Alien cultures mixed
with local traditions and filled the city with special flavor in architecture,
habits of cooking and lifestyle.
Today three quarters of the city's population, numbering 1.83 million, are Caucasians.
It is home for the third largest, after Chicago and New York, community of
Poles. Fifty thousand Ukrainians, which
is a quarter of the entire diaspora in Brazil, live in Curitiba as well. Actually
why not? After all it is better to live there where life is better.
There are a great number of squares, parks and ponds in Curitiba. It is cozy,
very green and beautiful. It is a major center of tourism visited by over 2
million people annually. It has created a unique transport system, comfortable
and running smoothly like Swiss clockwork. Curitiba
is hosting the games of 2014 FIFA World Cup. The matches are held at Arena da
Baixada seating 43,981 spectators. This year the stadium turned a hundred years
old. Reconstruction was completed in spring 2014 and cost 106 million U.S.
