    The World Cup Travel in Brazil

    Now that the World Cup games have begun in Brazil, we get to see some shots of amazing spots in Brazil on TV. In the group phase, England has already played in Manaus, now is the turn for Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte. Let's take a closer look at these three metropolises and see what hides behind the sports camera shots.

    Manaus

    Manaus, a city with 2.5 million inhabitants, in the north of Brazil, lies in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. Getting there is almost only possible by boat or plane. This is where the two rivers, Negro and Solimões, meet to create the largest river in South America: the Amazon River. The two rivers waters flow next to each other for miles and their black and sand colour waters do not mix. This natural phenomenon is a landmark for Manaus. The city is a starting point for the Amazon River and jungle trips. Just imagine that more than one third of the world's species inhabit the Amazon Rainforest! Apart from the proximity to a world of wildlife, Manaus is also a fascinating port city to explore. Its sightseeing attractions include the Opera House (Teatro Amazonas), Mercado Municipal - a large market where you can find local cuisine specialties, and Ponta Negra Beach, where you are bound to unwind

    Sao Paulo

    Sao Paulo - soaring skyscrapers and modern urban landscape - find your way in one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world! Founded in 1554, Sao Paulo became the coffee world trade hub in the nineteenth century. Now it is a lively city that serves both as a financial and cultural centre of Brazil. If you are hungry for spectacular views of this amazing city, don't miss the opportunity and go to Terraao Italia - an observation deck on one of the skyscrapers. Get the feeling of the bustling nightlife of Sao Paulo and pay a visit to the Vila Madalena district. As a cultural centre, the city also presents a vast choice of museums; here are the museums worth your time: Museu Paulista - the museum of Brazilian history and the European art collection - the Museum of Art of Sao Paulo. During your trip to Sao Paulo, don't forget to see the Neo-Gothic Sao Paulo Cathedral downtown!

    Belo Horizonte

    The third largest city in Brazil, Belo Horizonte, is named after its beautiful landscape. The city lies in the backdrop of the stunning mountains. It is its proximity to the natural wonders that makes this place so attractive to tourists. Serra do Cipa National Park, some 60 miles from Belo Horizonte, welcomes you with its numerous waterfalls, cliffs, various bird species, and a countless number of plants. This place is a trekking, hiking, and horse riding heaven. Not only the beautiful world of wildlife, but also the city itself is worth spending your holidays in. There are the Oscar Niemeyera´s buildings in Pampulha district, where you will be heading to see Brazilian modern architecture at its best. Some 60 miles southeast of Belo Horizonte, or approximately one hour drive by car, lies a former colonial city Ouro Preto which old town part has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Choose between numerous regional attractions and discover Belo Horizonte your way!
