UNESCO declares Rio de Janeiro a World Heritage Site

Rio de Janeiro became this Sunday a World Heritage Site. It is the first city on the planet to receive the title under the category "cultural landscape".

The decision was taken by the organization's heritage committee. The announcement was made during the 36th meeting of the committee, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The application dossier was sent to the United Nations in September, 2009. In January 2011, UNESCO decided to formalize Rio's application.

The harmonious relation between nature and human intervention was, according to the National Institute of the Historic and Artistic Heritage (IPHAN), the centerpiece of the application. The dossier listed the most relevant natural settings that make Rio's landscape original and exceptional, like the Sugarloaf Mountain, the Corcovado, Tijuca Forest, Copacabana Beach, and Guanabara Bay.

The concept of "cultural landscape" was created by UNESCO in 1992, as a new category of heritage site. Since then, 911 places have received the title. Previously to Rio's recognition, the list only included rural areas, traditional agricultural systems, historical gardens, and places of religious, symbolic or emotional meanings.

Besides Rio, Brazil has 18 natural and cultural sites in the list of UNESCO, such as the architectonic and urban settings of Ouro Preto and Brasília, the historic city centers of Olinda, Salvador, Diamantina, São Luís, and Goiás, the ruins of São Miguel das Missões and the sanctuary of Bom Jesus de Matosinhos, in Congonhas. The natural heritage list includes the national parks of Iguaçu, Costa do Descobrimento, Serra da Capivara, Jaú, Pantanal, Veadeiros and Fernando de Noronha.

Jardim Oceânico... parece uma Paris mesmo, é lindo
Fiquei sabendo numa aula de história que há muito tempo atrás, o Rio de Janeiro era a capital mais feia das Américas
Favelas a beira da orla... prédios amontoados e desorganizados... sem nenhum planejamento urbanístico

Então fizeram um projeto arquitetônico igual ao que a capital francesa estava sofrendo no momento
Tentaram transformar o Rio de Janeiro na "Paris da América Latina"
Pode ser que o projeto tenha falhado, e não se concretizado como pode-se observar hoje em dia

Mas esse jardim oceânico é uma relíquia viva desse re-urbanismo que o Rio de Janeiro sofreu a tanto tempo atrás
Em termos arquitetônicos, acho que o Jardim Oceânico é uma das únicas partes bonitas da cidade (que parece só ter belezas naturais).

você está equivocado, muitas partes do Rio são lindas, Glória, Aterro, Urca, copa, Ipanema, Lagoa, leblon, são conrado, barra, leme, etc... lógico que tem suas partes feias, igual a São Paulo e qualquer outra cidade.

Rio de Janeiro Named to Prestigious World Heritage List
Published at 12:00 pm EST, July 3, 2012

The landscapes of Rio de Janeiro have been entered onto the World Heritage List, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization said.
The decision regarding the Brazilian city was adopted by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee at its 36th session in Russia’s second-largest city.
Rio de Janeiro, Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea was the only Latin American site aspiring to be included on the list at the current meeting.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said that the UNESCO designation was a “reason for pride for all of Brazil” and an incentive to continue with Rio’s “revitalization.”

In a communique the head of state added that the designation comes at a time when the city has proven that it has “management competence and capacity to host important national and international events,” including the recent U.N. conference on sustainable development.

In addition, she noted that Rio will be one of the sites for the 2014 soccer World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.

The UNESCO panel, which is tasked with ensuring fulfillment of the tenets enshrined in the 1972 World Heritage Convention, is made up of representatives of 21 countries elected by the signatory nations.

At the beginning of the 36th session of the Committee, which will last until July 6, the World Heritage List included 725 sites in 153 countries.
