Welcome to Utopia: Brasilia

Brasilia, Brazil’s capital city, is a unique and very significant city. Brasilia is actually a newer and very well planned out city (some say designed with the intent of being a Utopian society), as it was only inaugurated in 1960 after the 4 year span it took to build. The fast pace in which it was built actually provided the city’s slogan “50 years of progress in 5″. In some ways, the city is also considered a memorial to President Juscelino Kubitschek, under who’s direction the city was built.

The city itself was carefully designed in the shape of a giant bird or airplane. What’s very interesting, is that the city is separated into different zones, which all serve individual functions: Hotel sector, commercial sector, residential sector, local commerce sector, and embassy sector. There’s even a modern cathedral at the intersection of where the sectors meet, which is quite a sight to see.

There’s plenty to keep you busy on your visit to Brasilia. One sight you should definitely explore is The Three Powers Square. Here sits the three highest authorities in Brasilia: Congress, The Presidential Palace, and The Supreme Court. For a really cool sight, visit The Three Powers Square when the sun rises, as it always rises directly between the two towers of congress. The flag that is hoisted here on a daily basis is also the largest regularly hoisted flag on Earth.

For all you science fiction fans, check out the Juscelino Kubitschek Memorial. This semi-creepy museum is a tribute to the late president, houses his remains, and looks like it is straight out of a 60′s sci-fi thriller. For those of you looking for a guided tour of all of Brasilia’s main attractions, you can also take a guided bus tour.

Eating in Brasilia can be quite an international fair, as you can not only enjoy a wide array of Brazilian cuisine, but also an abundance of international delicacies as well. You can also choose from dining a little cheaper at the self-service restaurants that are popular here, or eating at a table-service restaurant. Eating at one of the traditional Brazilian steakhouse restaurants here, such as Fogo de Chao, is highly recommended. You’ll never believe how much meat you can eat in one sitting until you’ve eaten at a Brazilian steakhouse!

Great hotels are in abundance in Brasilia, and there is a wide variety of options for large and small budgets. For smaller budgets, places like the Hotel Brasilia or Hospedagem Alternativa have rooms available for as low as $50 a night. For those who want to splurge on their stay, The Brasilia Alvorada Hotel or the Brasilia Palace Hotel are very centrally located and treat you like royalty.

With all that Brasilia has to offer, and just the very fact that there’s no city like it on Earth, why not book your trip now? They’d love to have you!
