BRASILIA  -  BRAZIL


Brasília is the capital city of Brazil and is famous for its urban planning, daring architecture and rapid population growth. It's current population of about 2.3 million makes it a busy metropolis where time never stops.
 

The city was constructed between 1956 and 1960 during the government of President Juscelino Kubitschek. It was inaugurated, as Brazil's new capital, on April 21, 1960 following a master plan conceived by Lucio Costa, and its major buildings were designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
 

Planned for only 500,000 inhabitants, Brasilia has seen its population grow much more than expected. Several satellite towns have been created over the years to house the extra inhabitants.
