    Most of the countries I have been too I have always gone to the capital city. However, if you fly into this city OK. But do not waste your time to make a special trip to see this city. This is an artificial city meaning that nothing here existed prior to the mid 60's. The government people that must work here leave Friday afternoon to return to Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo or elsewhere for the weekend. The city is empty on the weekends. I stood in the middle of the major freeway without traffic driving by me on a Saturday afternoon. If you are in the city go see the government buildings, they look like Dominoes lined up and the Cathedral as well as the Government Palace. This is all within 2 square blocks. After that, make other plans as there is no reason to stay.

    The temple has a shape of a pyramid with 7 sides with the largest crystal found in the region on the top. Under the crystal people can follow a spiral path while praying, meditating or seeking power. It's facilities also have a meditation hall and an art gallery.

    Brasilia is the capital city of Brazil. It's a planned city, that was built following a tight scheme. It has beautiful monuments, and the clearest sky you can see in the entire Americas. The climate is warm mostly the entire year.

    Nightlife is full of good restaurants and places to listen to music and dance, going from Sertanejo (a brazilian style closest to american Country), rock, to caribbean dance rhytms.

    Brasília é um lugar incrível de se conhecer pelo fato de mesclar monumentos revolucionários á lugares com arquitetura popular.É também um lugar ao mesmo tempo para divertir-se como para descansar possuindo várias baladas,hotéis e pousadas,pizzarias restaurantes e outros lugares onde pode-se fazer de tudo um pouco!!!

    Brasilia is an interesting city architecturally. As some know it was a planned city and whether or not it is a success is due to your taste levels. I thought it was tacky but all of Brazil is charming so there is no way I wouldn't recommend it.

    Brasilia is a bit of an urbanist modern experiment.
    And it's also a fantastic city to visit if you are interested in modernism architecture.

    It also serves as a base to visit the beautiful Cerrados parks around it (specially the Chapada dos Veadeiros one).

    My favorite building in Brasilia... cool spiral to walk around and meditate, big ol' crystal to charge you up, even special holy water to drink. Lots of cool rooms to check out, old artifacts, gifts, even a tomb. The day I was there, lots of military types cruising around with swords... not sure if that's usual or if I just got lucky.

Description

If you are into architecture or urban planning, you have to visit the Brazilian federal capital, Brasilia (in the Central-West region of the country). The city was designed by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in 1956, and formally became Brazil’s capital in 1960. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The city is divided into numbered blocks and sectors for specific activities, and from above resembles a butterfly or a plane. The utopian city planning and use of modernist architecture on a large scale has been both praised and criticized. Whilst exploring the architecture of the city, make sure not to miss the Eixo Monumental – an open area downtown hosting many monuments and government buildings, including the almost abstract National Congress Building – and the Palacio da Alvorada on Lake Paranoa, the official residences of the Brazilian President. But it’s not just about buildings and open spaces, and Brasilia boasts a lively and varied cultural scene, as well as a diverse ... read more
and renowned cuisine. Head to the Asa Sul district for some of the finest dining in the city.
