Curitiba Vacations & Travel Packages!
It is assumed that nothing is more Brazilian than Salsa and sea beaches, however if you’re coming Curitiba for a daredevil water sport or for sunbathing alongside sea, you could be in for a numb shock. The Brazilian beach city is an exquisite masterpiece of sustainable urban planning that commands respect from the visitors that come here from far and wide. It has a decent number of tourist attractions and you would find that its infrastructure (especially its Bus Rapid Transport) is an absolute gold standard and that you wouldn’t feel a thing while going from a museum to a church or from a concert hall to a botanical garden in a public transit.

Bosque Alemao (German Woods)
A child’s paradise in every sense, Bosque Alemao is a dense four hectare park in Curitiba.

For the elders, there is the Oratorio Bach, a replica of Presbyterian Church of Neo-Gothic style and Casa Milla, a historical masterpiece of German architecture in Curitiba.
Museu Oscar Niemeyer (Oscar Niemeyer Museum)
One should go in here not as one goes into any artistic place, but restfully and respectfully, as one enters into a church and walk slowly while trying to absorb its innate ambiance. Welcome to Museu Oscar Niemeyer or the Eye Museum in Curitiba, a state-of-the-art museum that has a distinct eye-shaped annex to it. The museum features Niemeyer's (the architect who designed a grand portion of Brasilia, capital of Brazil) preferred artistic depictions in geometric forms and curved volumes with vivid murals or paintings.
This is where the city of Curitiba was born on 29 March 1693 AD. Tiradentes Square is the most historical place in the city and was earlier known as Largo da Matriz but it was changed to its current name in 1889 AD. You should visit it for Basilica Cathedral Minor of Our Lady of Light (estd: 1876 AD) that lies on the north of this square and is made in Neo-Gothic style.
