The name “Rio de Janeiro” sounds like the lively
rhythm of samba. Pictures of the world-famous carnival recur to your
memory when you hear it – dancers wearing bright seductive dresses decorated with
feathers and half a million of mulattos in white pants.
Janeiro ("January River" from Portuguese) was founded in 1565 on the
shore of Guanabara Bay (the Atlantic Ocean), when Captain Gaspar de Lemos took
the bay for an estuary. Rio had been the capital of Brazil for nearly two
centuries, since 1763 till 1960. Then the capital was transferred to Brasilia.
Rio was granted the status of an administrative center of the same-name Brazilian
The Great City of January River and Brazilian Carnival
The city is
located in subequatorial climate zone. An average temperature in July is up to 21.5 degrees C.
The population in 2010 was 6.3 million, with the suburbs it was twice more. Rio
de Janeiro strikes the visitors with the contrast between luxurious new as well
as grand ancient neighborhoods and favela slums where the tourists are discouraged
to come even in the daytime. The entire
historic center of the city, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana Beach and Christ
the Redeemer (the most famous 38 m high statue of Jesus on Corcovado Mountain)
are the area protected by UNESCO.
talking about Rio, one cannot but mention the famous Brazilian carnival – samba
schools festival. It is held annually 40 days before the Resurrection of Christ
(Easter) and marks the beginning of Lent. Brazilians know how to have fun, indeed!
Only Brazilians can start the fast in such a relaxed way!

Cup for the second time (the first one was in 1950). Maracana will be the second world’s stadium having hosted the finals of
