There is hardly anything more popular from Brazil than its colourful, musical and highly entertaining Carnival. Taking place 51 days before Easter, this festival is perhaps Brazil’s biggest tourism influx. However, being far from Brazil does not mean you get to miss all the fun.
Brazil’s impact on the world in business, finances, education and literature is something to be considered thoroughly. The South American country is so important worldwide, that it is an important subject to include in academic disciplines.
One of London’s most iconic modern landmarks comes in the shape of an unusual building right in the heart of the financial district. The Gherkin, built in 2004, is not only an award-winning structure but also the pivotal point of a billionaire business.
Perhaps the most known Brazilian architect is Oscar Niemeyer. Not only did he leave an impressive concrete print throughout the South American country with iconic buildings, and not only was he a key element in the development of modern architecture, but he was also the great architectural mind behind the city of Brasilia.
