Brasília is the capital of Brazil and is designed and build within 4 years. Urban planner Lucio Costa, architect Oscar Niemeyer and landscape architect Burle Marx, commissioned by President Juscelino Kubitschek, created the inland capital of Brasília, which was inaugurated on April 21st, 1960. Seen from above, Brasília looks like an aeroplane or a bow and arrow.
Because of its unique design and the architecture Brasília is under protection of the UNESCO s World Heritage.
The architecture must truly be seen to be believed. Buildings like the Alvorada Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral or the National Congress are of an unusual but harmonious design.
