In the 1950s Brazil’s president Juscelino Kubitschek ordered the design and construction of a new and more centrally located capital city for Brazil in order to replace Rio de Janeiro. The result of this endeavor is Brasília, a metropolis located in the Brazilian Highlands. The city is ranked a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its exceptional modernist architecture which can be ascribed to the city’s chief architect Oscar Niemeyer and which can be seen in every part of the city. One of the main landmarks of the city is the Palácio da Alvorada, the residence of the country’s president. Since the city was specifically designed in order to cater to the needs of modern residents, there are numerous leisure activities available such as a large choice of shopping centers, cinemas, concert venues and restaurants. For a taste of Brasília’s local cuisine, you should make sure to visit the Asa Sul district, where the city’s top rated restaurants can be found.
