Brasília to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

March 12, 2010

Catedral Metropolitana de Brasília

Yesterday Brasília, the capital of Brazil, announced the attractions for the party celebrating its 50th anniversary on April 21.

Disney World characters will parade on Eixo Monumental at 10:30 a.m. Concerts at Esplanada dos Ministérios will start at 6 p.m. and feature Brazilian artists NX Zero, Para lamas do Sucesso, Luan Santana, Daniela Mercury, Bruno and Marrone.

In order to fully enjoy all Brasília has to offer, you must not think of the city as an image of corruption, and discover every good thing this UNESCO World Heritage Site has to offer. Be sure to see the amazing plan and architecture by Lúcio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer, check out the bars and restaurants, and visit the surrounding cerrado, home to Chapada dos Veadeiros and Emas National Parks, also UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Unfortunately, the Metropolitan Cathedral, one of Brasília’s top attractions, won’t be fully renovated by anniversary day. Work should be concluded by June. However, according to recent reports in Brazil media, the cathedral will be opened for anniversary day celebrations.
