Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches.
Beach life in Rio is a real art, which can be learnt in a moment. Show everything you can do – it's the motto of the world-famous Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. The other thing why the natives come to the beach is to laze in the sun, listen to music, do surf-riding and play football or volleyball. Copacabana is the most popular beach. The largest hotels are situated there. The international beau-monde mostly prefers Ipanema and Leblon, the posh outskirts of Rio. Admission there is free. Endless boulevards along the beaches are full of music, bars and restaurants.
The statue of Jesus.
On the very top of Corcovado Mountain you'll see the enormous statue of Jesus, which has become the symbol of Rio. Jesus can be seen in every point of the city. One can get to Corcovado Mountain by a small train, minibus or taxi. The marvelous view on the city is just unforgettable. At the bottom of the statue take place cafes, a small museum and the chapel. Train from Rue Cosmo Velho goes every half an hour from 8.30 to 18.15. If to go back by the last train, you'll have an opportunity to enjoy the fantastic view on Rio.
