Brasilia – Model City

Verdict; some very impressive architecture, but you would not want to live there. It really is like Milton Keynes, but bigger and with more of a 60/70’s vibe going on. As the landmarks are so striking, rather than waffle on, I thought I would simply upload some of my favourite photos. Not a City to rush to visit, but interesting to see what happens when the development of a major city it 100% planned.


Photos: The guy waving is JK who was the Brazilian president who commissioned the city and therefore has a very large and impressive memorial dedicated to him, the modern cathedral is designed to look like Christ’s crown of thorns and I have absolutely so idea what the two guys with spears is all about!
