33- Rio de Janeiro: Marechal Floriano Square in Downtown

Brazilian Republic was proclaimed in 1889 (we were an Empire between 1822 and 1889) and Rio de Janeiro adopted an urban plan similar to Paris, because our government decided to "modernize" part of old colonial city center, attracting new offices and lavish stores. This square was at one end of Rio Branco Avenue - then our main bourgeois axis, with imposing buildings, and today our most important business avenue -, while other end was in Mauá Square, with our seaport docks (at Guanabara Bay).

In 1930s, with its great number of palatial movie theaters, it was nicknamed "Cinelândia" - Land of Cinemas. Till today it is a beautiful spot, with Beaux Arts Architecture, modern towers and museums nearby.

Obelisk inaugurated with Rio Branco Avenue in 1905:

Multi-storey buildings began to appear in this square around 1930, and at right we see the yellow eccletic tower with a very famous bar and restaurant in our city - the Amarelinho:

35- Rio de Janeiro: Seasonal Book Fair in Marechal Floriano Square, Downtown.

Taking advantage of the proximity of our National Library, there is annually a Book Fair, with interesting titles and very good prices

This fair happens in other squares of Rio, during all year.

36- Rio de Janeiro: National Museum of Fine Arts (MNBA - Museu Nacional de Belas Artes, in portuguese), situated close to Marechal Floriano Square, Downtown.

It's our "small Louvre", built at the beginning of XXth Century, and is one of my favorite places to visit in Rio. With a fabulous collection of paintings, sculptures and very recent works, this museum gives a good chance to know more than 250 years in the History of Brazilian Art. And it has too a collection of old egyptian, mesopotamian, greek and roman artifacts.

In this post, and in next ones, I will refer to this museum as cariocas use to call it: MNBA.

Views of the building, with main entry at Rio Branco Avenue - in next future I will post a photo taken this week, with brand new tram line in this avenue.

Nice to see non beach photos of Rio de Janeiro. It looks like it is always sunny in Rio.

Are those suburbs in forest dangerous? (lot of poisonous snakes and spiders etc.)

47- Rio de Janeiro: Cinelândia Subway Station in Marechal Floriano Square

Visitors of MNBA can use the subway station very close to its block, from one of our metro lines (number 1) linking downtown with South Zone (where Copacabana District is), North Zone and, with adequate connection, some suburbs.

Being inaugurated in 1979, this station has a very different style of architecture from that one presented in Cardeal Arcoverde Subway Station (previous page), inaugurated almost 20 years later.

When we go out of Cinelândia Subway Station, it is possible to see first those typical 1930s to 1990s office buildings in Marechal Floriano Square, before going to the MNBA:

Hello, thank you for visiting this thread, where it will be possible to see how varied is urban and rural landscape of Rio de Janeiro.

Well, I choose to take pictures in sunny days because final result looks better, but be sure we have rainy days too - for benefit of our forests.

Those suburbs in forest aren't dangerous: I live there and can say it is safe, if you don't walk without care in the woods. There are insects, arachnids and snakes, but my experience about them is simple: they don't affect you if you don't mess with them.
