Rio De Janeiro is one of the best-known cities in South America. It is situated in the south-eastern part of Brazil and it is an administrative centre of the Brazilian state Rio de Janeiro. It is the second largest city both in Brazil and in the South America. The population of the city is nearly 12 million. During the period 1763 - 1822, Rio de Janeiro was the capital city of Brazil. At present, Rio de Janeiro is famous for annual Carnival and samba schools. There are beautiful beaches near the city, for example, Copacabana and Ipanema. Another big attraction is the giant sculpture Krista Spasitele (Christo Redentor) on the top of Mount Corcovado. The giant monument is a dominating feature, well visible from distance, and offers spectacular vistas. Rio de Janeiro takes pride in the football stadium called Maracana, one of the largest stadiums in the world. The tropical climate in this geographical zone is connected with annual average temperature about 20°C but in summer the temperature may exceed 40°C. Rio de Janeiro is famous for a variety of sights and historical monuments. The first place of interest to mention is the Paço Imperial (Imperial Palace) , where Portuguese governors of Brazil used to live. It took a long time before the palace was completed: the construction works were commenced in 1775 but they were not finished until the end of the 19th century. Another monument is the Old Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro (Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte do Carmo da antiga Sé) . It also was used as Royal and Imperial chapel by the Portuguese and Brazilian royal families. The modern Cathedral of Rio de Janeiro (Catedral Metropolitana do Rio de Janeiru or Catedral de S?o Sebasti?o do Rio de Janeiro) is the seat of the archbishop and its capacity is 20 000 persons. Another landmark and architectonic and cultural monument is the Municipal Theatre (Theatro Municipal) or the National Library building. You can visit the Passeio Público, the oldest public garden in Brazil. It was founded in 1779. There is a distinctive architectonic rarity, the imposing arches of the Arcos da Lapa, a Roman-style aqueduct. On the other hand, the city is considered one of the most dangerous cities around the world. The slums at the outskirts are connected with illegal activities and serious social issues. The city of Rio de Janeiro has a harbour, five airports and two underground lines.
