The capital city of Brazil isn’t Rio de Janeiro as most people would think, it’s a city called Brasilia which you can best visit with our Brasilia car hire services. Brasilia is a planned city built in just four years from 1956 to 1960 and it is truly a masterpiece of modernist architecture.
Due to it being a planned city Brasilia looks like a giant bird or an airplane when seen from above with certain parts of it being dedicated to particular activities or functions such as housing or commerce.
Brasilia is served by the Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek Airport which is located eleven miles from the city center. It is connected to the city via bus routes and taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Brasilia car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
The great thing about Brasilia being a planned city is that it was planned with motorized vehicles in mind, and this means that your trip there will be considerably more pleasant if you have a car at your disposal. Getting around with a car is actually ideal since there are public parking lots all over the place but it would be important to either have a detailed map on hand or GPS installed in your rental car as gaining access to some streets might be confusing, especially in the central area.
Once you’re in the city you can start by visiting the Three Powers Square, this is where the seats of the country’s three highest authorities reside, the Congress, the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court.
Then there’s the facade of the Palace of Justice which features waterfalls meant to contrast with its sharp geometrical beauty and then the Itamaraty Palace which also stands out.
The Brasilia Cathedral is yet another unique building that you must see while in the city. It is made with sixteen curved concrete pillars and stained-glass panels it is without a doubt one of the most amazing modernist buildings in the world.
These are of course only a few of the many modernist structures that you can view and visit while in Brazil’s capital just keep in mind that our Brasilia car hire services will definitely prove to be an advantage to your enjoying your trip better.
