A city with so much diversity, not only in its people, but its architecture.

Rio is amazing! If it weren't for so many ugly buildings, I'd say it was perfect. You show the older parts of Rio brilliantly - colourful and vibrant. Muita obrigada.

Despite the ravages of the 60's/70's and 80's Rio still has an amazing number of attractive older buildings, in 2007 when this thread was created a lot of them were in desperate need of restoration but the city has been busy improving it's image for the forthcoming World Cup (2014) and Olympic Games (2016) One of the real problems is a lack of skilled labour, strange when you think that the city obviously had no such problems 100 years ago when many wonderful buildings were constructed, many of which were swept away in a wave of modernist madness to be replaced by appalling quality most of which are now overdue for the demolition hammer. Looking forward to going back there soon to see the progress -this city has so much to offer with a setting that is unequal in the whole world - breathtaking!
