Curitiba - South Region of Brazil

01 Built in a tube-like structure, the Ópera de Arame (Wire Opera House), from 1992, is a magical space that integrates into the nature of its surroundings.

02 This is the entrance to Wire Opera House.

03 Inside part of the Ópera de Arame.

04 A view from the footbridge.

05 The Linha Turismo (Tourism Line) is a special city tour that visits the main tourist attractions in Curitiba.

06 This is our Jardim Botânico (Botanic Garden). Curitiba's tradermark. Its metallic structure holds botanical species that are national references.

07 Jardim Botânico - Curitiba

08 Memorial Ucraniano: A replica of Saint Michael's Church, of a place called Mount of the Tiger (in Mallet) it has roofing made of pine and a bronze dome. Located in our Parque Tingui, it is dedicated to the centennial of the arrival of the Polish pionners.

09 Praça Tiradentes: Considered to be the City's starting point, the "Catedral Basílica Nossa Senhora da Luz" is located in Praça Tiradentes.

10 Rua das Flores: Part of Curitiba's main street, it was the country's first "calçadão" (black and white decorated street exclusive for pedestrians). It is one the marks of the city cultural revolution.

11 Rua 24 horas: The street that never closes. It attracts the Curitibanos (native people of our town) and tourists that are looking for leisure, going shopping and having many options for eating.

12 Museu Ferroviário: (Railway Museum) Built in the old railway station, it shows how the station would have looked a century ago.

13 Teatro Paiol: Built in 1906, the old gunpowder storeroom was "recycled" into an arena shaped theatre in 1971.

14 Teatro Guaíra: Is located in the Praça Santos Andrade and it's one of Latin America's largest theaters.

15 Universidade Federal do Paraná: This is the oldest University in Brazil. Since 1912

16 Memorial Árabe: Located in the Praça Gibran Khalil, the Memorial is a modern construction, inspired on the people of the desert. Inside de building a library can be found.

17 Passeio Público: It was the first public park and also the first zoo in Curitiba. It used to host large animals, nowadays there's only small ones to be seen there.

... There's more to come.
