As a souvenir from Brazil, many tourists bring home green-colored alcoholic drink Caipirinha or Cachaça, Brazilian spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice. A traditional souvenir from the distant country is its coffee that became famous all over the globe. It's advisable to buy coffee beans for further grinding. In Brazil, there are many mines where precious stones are mined. Jewelry of decent quality can be purchased at lower prices than in other countries of the world. Football in Brazil is raised to the status of national religion. It's no wonder that here you can find a lot of sportswear and accessories related to this sport. Some stores offer their visitors balls autographed by their favorite players.
The purchase of local ethnic clothing would be quite original. Look for it in Rio de Janeiro's neighborhood of Ipanema where a fair is held once a week on Sundays. Here you can buy lace dresses, swimsuits, national musical instruments, jewelry, all kinds of small souvenirs and, of course, handmade shoes at reasonable prices. Local shoes deserve special mention. Brazil has long become the best place to buy summer shoes on the planet. The excellent quality of shoes is little inferior to the one offered by famous Italian and other world brands. Tourists should pay attention to summer slippers, light summer sports shoes, and, of course, summer ladies' court shoes. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Besides the market in Rio, try to find time to visit such major shopping centers as Rio Sul and Barra Shopping. In general, Rio is a paradise for shoppers since the bulk of branded boutiques is concentrated in this city. But keep in mind that their prices are not much different from European ones. Another market famous all over Brazil and far beyond its borders is in the city of Salvador. Its name is Mercado Modelo. Today it is an ordinary flea market. Visit this place if you're interested in all kinds of small things and souvenirs at very low prices. By the way, prices in Salvador are several times lower than in Rio de Janeiro. Therefore, it makes sense to buy souvenirs while here but not in more expensive and branded Rio.
Mole Beach In the capital city of Brasilia full of noisy markets and large shopping malls, tourists are recommended to visit a market located at the foot of the city television tower. It is ideal for purchasing all sorts of souvenirs. Here you can find ceramics, leather, paintings, candles, hammocks, ethnic masks or jewelry. Prices will pleasantly surprise and please any tourist.

While in Sao Paulo, tourists have a chance to visit the local grocery municipal market. You'll find products of the local cuisine, a variety of vegetables, fruit, and delicacies. Fans of gastronomic tourism will surely appreciate it, while low prices will be an additional nice bonus.
Rio Panorama There are two sales seasons in Brazil. The first one starts in February and usually lasts about a month. It is timed to the carnival. Tourists should be attentive during this period. If tempting sales reach 100% and more (and sometimes it happens), then traders inflate prices for goods artificially, returning prices to the original values profitable for themselves. The second season falls at the end of Brazilian winter. Usually, it's August and September. The country does not have such a great flow of tourists during this period, and some shops reduce prices to attract customers.

Etendeka-Parana Traps

From the series “Volcanoes and Traps That Changed the Face of the Planet”
Parana-Etendeka province is incredibly amazing to explore. This igneous place is in Brazil. It was formed more than 130 million years ago. The area of ​​this province is more than one and a half million square kilometers, but scientists do not exclude that the lava spread area could be twice as much.

One of the main attractions of the igneous province is Rio Grande Mountain. The exact reason of its appearance is unknown, but scientists do not exclude that there has been the largest volcanic eruption in that place millions of years ago. Geological changes that followed the major eruptions were very impressive too. Researchers suggest that the picturesque island of Tristan da Cunha appeared as a result of this volcanic activity.

Christ The Redeemer

From the series “15 Unofficial Man-Made Wonders of the World”
Christ the Redeemer monument is the most important national symbol of Brazil. It was officially elected as one of the seven new wonders of the world.

The basic building material was concrete. It's noteworthy that the monument is the highest point of the city and its surroundings, so during thunderstorms it often catches lightning. Builders foresaw this nuance few decades ago, so they … Read all
