Holiday in Brazil with Brazilian Express

Brazil - with this term one associates the endless Amazon jungle, wonderful beaches, Rio de Janeiro carnival and samba dancing. This is all correct but in reality, Brazil is much more, a huge country of the superlatives. Travellers spending a holiday in Brazil are sure to fall in love with the magical attractions of this exotic destination. A country of immense proportions and contrasts has a mysterious attraction for many people. With a surface of 8.5 million km², Brazil is approximately as big as Europe and covers half of the South American continent. The climate changes from the permanent warm, tropical north to over all subtropical variants of the moderate South. Since the 16th century - when Portuguese have begun to settle in the country - Brazil had always been a magical attraction which caught the eyes of thousands of foreigners.

First there was the gold then rubber and coffee. At present it is about the pulsating rhythm and the exotic attractions that invite tourists. People over there show a lot of happiness, kindness and spontaneity. The biggest country of South America is a mirror of fascinating pictures.

There are some 45km (28 mi) separating downtown Flamengo from Recreio, bordered on one side by the blue ocean, on the other by verdant hills. Between them lies a colourful state of mind called “carioca”, relaxed and high-spirited. Although being no longer Brazil’s capital, Rio is still an important cultural, financial and tourist centre.
