Germany fest in Brazil - Beaurnfest in Petrópolis - Enjoy!!

BAUERNFEST = FARMERPARTY

My pics form beautiful celebration of German immigrants and their descendants in Petropolis, a mountain cold city, next to city of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Petrópolis populacion: 320.000
* Foristas brasileiros, sintam-se a vontade para colocar mais fotos da cidade de Petrópolis

HISTORY
The town's name ("city of Peter") honors Emperor Pedro II, the nation's second monarch. The city was the summer residence of the Brazilian Emperors and aristocrats in the 19th century, and was the official capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro between 1894 and 1903.

The town's origins can be traced to Bernardo Soares de Proença, who in 1720 opened an alternative route between Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, across the Serra da Estrela. While traveling to Minas Gerais along this route, Emperor Pedro I found the region's climate pleasant, so in 1830 he bought a farm, and had his Summer Palace built there, but he never saw it finished, since he stepped down from the trone. Other Brazilian aristocrats eventually followed suit.

Under his successor Pedro II, German farmers from the Rhineland were encouraged to immigrate and to settle on the Emperor's outlying lands, to help give the Palace a charming urban setting. The settlement of Petrópolis was founded on March 16, 1843, being promoted to district in 1844 and finally city in 1857. The road connecting the city to Rio de Janeiro was opened in 1910 and paved in 1928.
