Fly To Brasilia, Brazil
Known for its modern edge, Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil, is a prime example of thoughtful urban planning, and it’s the only city built in the 20th century that’s a designated UNESCO's World Heritage Site. The Cathedral of Brasilia, Complexo Cultural da Republica and the Palacio da Alvorada are just some of Brasilia’s most imaginative monuments and buildings.
With a cityscape that embodies the best in beauty, simplicity and functionality, the Brasilia you see today is the seat of government and an urban destination with harrowing six-lane highways connected by not-easily-negotiated spaghetti junctions.
