One of the most beautiful coastal cities in the world: stunning Rio de Janeiro !!!

All the following pictures are from the thread "Rio Hotéis e Capital Turística by Raul Lopes" available on the brazilian forums in SSC.

Rio de Janeiro is Brazil´s second largest city and it´s famous all over the world. It has been Brazil´s capital city until 1960 and though not so modern and wealthy as São Paulo, it has managed to modernize itself in the last decade through major international events like hosting the FIFA World Cup and Summer Olympic Games. Its beautiful beaches, nice hotels, sunny weather and good restaurants and overall a joyful atmosphere attracts visitors from all over the world every year.

I´ll start with Barra da Tijuca, the city´s most modern area, with lots of canals and lagoons and a beautiful beach, modern hotels, nice houses and condos, and fancy malls. It´s the city´s most modern area.

Starting...

The Grand Hyatt Hotel









One of Rio´s 2 Hilton Hotels.

















The beautiful beach






















The 2 new Marriott hotels close to the Olympic Park.








Love Mercedes



And others







Village Mall, a very modern and luxurious mall in Barra da Tijuca



















The former Trump Rio Hotel. Very stylish.

























Barra da Tijuca is very modern and well planned. I love it.

Modern apartment buildings and hotels on the coastline























Beautiful houses too














And the great beach





And lagoons

Rio de Janeiro looks really stunning!!!

In 2019 Brazil was the fourth largest country to receive more FDI ( Foreign Direct Investment) in the whole world. More than 78,5 billion US dollars were invested in the country from abroad. In 2017 Brazil was the third, only behind China and US.

Not bad for the eight largest economy in the world in purchasing power parity.

More of Rio de Janeiro business district.

Very nice.





















This museum is by Santiago Calatrava. It´s beautiful.









There are some really interesting old public buildings in the area.














This one is a library. A public one. One of the largest in the world. Love the modern tram. The same used in Dubai, imported from France.













This is another very classy one. Very well kept.



The opera house is really beautiful. Inspired by the one in Paris.









I love this other one. It´s the National Museum of Beaux Arts. It has such a western/european character to it. Brazil is definetely a western country. Above Brazil in the western world, there´s only US and Germany.

This palace is beautiful.
