-Succeeding Rio de Janeiro as Brazil's capital in 1960, Brasilia was completely built in less than 3 years in 1960 as a planned city of startling white modern avant-garde architecture predominantly designed by Oscar Niemeyer and Lúcio Costa plus the landscape architect of Roberto Burle Marx. The city is actually created in the shape of an airplane with 2 wide avenues flanking a massive park, Praça dos Três Poderes and very defined areas of residential, government and commercial activity. A town built for walking around, many of its tourist sights are in one large area. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its modernist architecture and unique urban planning. The city has hosted the 2014 FIFA World Cup as well as the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.
You definitely won't get bored in Brasilia meandering around its monopoly streets of landmarks such as the Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida comprising of 16 curved concrete columns soaring to the skies, the Palacio dos Arcos with its absolutely stunning and lavish gardens, the Santuario Dom Bosco (Sanctuary of Dom Bosco) considered to be the inspiration for Brasilia's design or the dramatic Monumento JK: President Kubitschek Memorial plus numerous other amazing feats of modern architecture dotted all over the city. When you have had enough of jaw dropping architecture, there is the Parque Nacional de Brasilia to swan around in the fresh air and play with some wild pigs or chat to a giant armadillo.
