The dramatic landscape of Rio de Janeiro, cradled between the green mountains of the Tijuca Massif, the Guanabara Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, has always been a source of inspiration for art, literature, poetry and music. In 2016, this landscape will provide the scenic background for the world’s most important sports event, the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
For those who do not know, Unesco has recently included Rio in the World Heritage List for its urban setting amidst exuberant tropical views – a unique encounter between culture and nature. The Brazilian government released some videos showing the city’s main attractions for the visitors who will certainly explore the city while watching the athlete’s show at the Olympic Arena.
