Palácio do Planalto There is a very original temple in the capital of Brazil, which cannot be found in any other city. The fact is that the building has got an unusual iridescent blue color, and inside you can also find all shades of blue color.

In addition, there is a Buddhist temple in Brasilia, a very chic one at that. We are talking about the temple of Terra Pura. This building contrasts a bit with the modern city but gives it a “zest”. The building was constructed by the Japanese government, as the capital of Brazil is home to a large number of Japanese people. Also in the city is a strong Muslim community, which is why there is a mosque, Centro Islâmico do Brasil. The mosque was built in the traditional oriental style, so there would be no feeling that the building is supposedly superfluous – it perfectly complements the urban landscape.
Brasília Palácio Itamaraty is yet another architecturally interesting building. In this chic palace is located the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it is considered by many locals and tourists to be the most beautiful building in the capital of Brazil. It has not only an attractively unique architecture but also a courtyard with a beautiful garden, a pond, and sculptures, which generally creates an unimaginable beautiful feeling. Around dusk, the palace is beautifully illuminated, adding romance to the evening city. However, in order to behold this look in all its glory, you need to climb Torre de Televisão.

It is necessary to highlight another great place for a relaxing holiday; we are talking about the park Ermida Dom Bosco. It is very calm and peaceful here, and along the way, you can find interesting sights – both natural and architectural. The main attraction is situated on the shores of Lake Lago Sul – here you can see the pyramid which is considered some sort of patron of the city.
