First time to Brasil, and I was SO excited once the visa was approved! I had no idea where I was going and because my hubby had already been, I did NO planning. Not even for what type of clothes to bring. And so we were off on a jet plane… to Curitiba, our first destination in the south of Brasil, in the state of Parana.
We toured around the whole city and so I chose to share my favourite things:
- The Botanical Garden: If you are in Curitiba, this place is a must! It is great to take pictures, visit the greenhouse and smaller gardens, have a snack or just take in some sun.
- Historical Center: Enjoy the historical buildings, cafés, restaurants, bars and more as you walk around Curitiba’s historical center. On Sundays, there is a market you can walk around and shop in.
- Oscar Niemeyer Museum: Anyone who even slightly enjoys architecture and design should visit this museum! Oscar Niemeyer was an important Brazilian architect who designed many buildings in Brasilia and overseas. The building itself is different and impressive inside and out.
