Now that you have your Brazil visa and your flight ready to go, let’s explore Brasilia, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, and Cuiaba!
BRASILIA Stadium: Estadio Nacional
The inland capital of Brazil, Brasilia is perfectly designed for large crowds and civic events. It’s known for its elegant, hypermodern architecture of the 1960s, whether the structure is a government building or a cathedral. The Estadio Nacional seats 68,009 fans and is the second-largest stadium in Brazil.
CURITIBA Stadium: Arena da Baixada
Just south of Sao Paulo, in the state of Parana, Curitiba is a progressive city that boasts the Arena da Baixada, a stadium recently renovated to host over 40,000 seats for the Brazilian World Cup. As with many Brazilian cities, it is hugely diverse, with immigrants from Italy, Ukraine, Japan, as well as Jewish immigrants who fled to Brazil during the early twentieth century.
PORTO ALEGRE Stadium: Estadio Beira-Rio
Far south in Brazil, Porto Alegre is tucked into a wild and beautiful Guaiba Lake, which is the site of five converging rivers. Some of Brazil’s most dreamy and bohemian neighborhoods are in Porto Alegre. The Estadio Beira-Rio is in the works to seat over 50,000 spectators.
CUIABA Stadium: Estadio Pantanal
Deep in the heart of Brazil is Cuiaba, the very center of South America. You can’t experience more of the heartland than here. For outdoor lovers as well as futebol fans, Cuiaba’s an accesspoint to the Chapada dos Guimaraes mountanins and the great rain forests of the continent. The Estadio Pantanal, an all-green stadium built of recycled woods and sustainable materials, hosts up to 42,968 fans.
