Overview

About Curitiba, Brazil

Curitiba, a place known among the Guarani people as the place of Paraná pines, was founded in 196. The history of the city is closely linked to economic cycles, where the cultivation of yerba mate, coffee, and soy, has been the engine of the economic development in the region.

During the 20th century, the city was redesigned with two major urban plans, the first one started in 1943, leaving the legacy of the radial street system, wide sidewalks, and the construction of some of the main roads of Curitiba. The second plan included the intensive use of public transport and environmental care.

Curitiba is known for its numerous parks and green areas. An ambitious project to make the city the ecological capital of Brazil, began in the 1990s. Bosque Portugal, Parque Barigui, Parque Tingu, and Jardin Botanico de Curitiba, are some of the most popular parks in the city.

The city offers many museums and cultural venues, as Museu Oscar Niemeyer, Museu de Arte Sacra, Museu de Historia Natural, and Museu da Imagem e do Som, dedicated to photography and the film industry. Curitiba has a prestigious theater festival that takes place every year, featuring local and international plays. Venues as Teatro Lala Schneider, Teatro Paiol, and Teatro Guaira, are some of the places that participate in the festival. Opera de Arame or 'wire opera', set in the north of the city, is one of the leaders in Curitiba. The theater is located next to Pedreira Paulo Leminski, in the middle of an artificial lake, and covered with transparent panels.

***The official currency of Brazil is the Brazilian Real (BRL).
