Removals to Brazil: Living in Brasilia the Capital
Brasilia is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and an important business and tourism destination. It was built in just four years between 1956 -1960 and was originally planned for half a million inhabitants but its population has expanded five-fold to 2.5 million.
Although not technically classed as a city, it has been the capital of Brazil since 1960, before which the capital was Rio de Janeiro. It was created so more people could live in western Brazil and is quite unlike anything you have seen before with plenty of greenery, parks, open spaces and almost no pollution.
Brasilia is a planned community built in the shape of a flying dove, or airplane, and each section has specific zoned areas including residential and business zones. Many major Brazilian companies are based here including the head offices of the Bank of Brazil and Brazil Telecom.
Living here you will find a lively, futuristic city with plenty of excellent restaurants, bars and places to visit. It also hosts movie festivals, musical and international events. And there are celebrations throughout the year, including the carnival and festivals held for various saints throughout the month of June. It is also home to the world's widest road where 160 cars can travel abreast.
Removals to Brasilia, Brazil: Places to Visit
As a major tourist destination, Brasilia has plenty of places to visit and has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Among the attractions are the incredible space age type buildings designed by world renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. His work includes the cathedral of Brasilia - which is lit up on certain occasions such as Easter and Christmas - and the capital's most important buildings: the twin towers of national congress, the courts of justice and the Presidential Palace, which are situated in the Three Powers Square. An interesting design feature of the square is that it has been deliberately designed so it sits right in the cockpit of the airplane shape of Brasilia.
For outstanding views of the city, it is well worth a climb to the top of the TV tower. Other attractions include the Brasilia Zoological Garden with more than 1,300 animals, The Dom Bosco Sanctuary Brasilia, and taking a boat trip on the Lago do Paranoá - a giant artificial lake - to see the sights from a different viewpoint.
Removals to Brazil: Accommodation for Expats
Many single expats choose to flat share to cut down the cost of their stay in Brasilia, as rent can be quite pricy. It also helps with bill paying too. However, if you are looking for a one bedroom apartment, you can expect to pay from £430 a month for an unfurnished apartment and £500 for furnished.
If you are moving to Brasilia with family and are looking to rent a two bedroom apartment, as a guide the rates can be between £460 - £600 for unfurnished accommodation and about £600 - £800 for a furnished apartment.
For a three bedroom unfurnished apartment you can expect to pay from £760, and from £900 for a furnished apartment (again rates are only a guide).
A four bedroom apartment will start at about £1000. Houses are more expensive but you can find smaller cottages for about £500. Make sure you have enough money for the security deposit (equivalent to one month's rent) and you will also need to have one month's rent available to pay upfront.
It is quite common for expats to hire domestic workers and this type of employment is not as costly compared to at home.
Removals to Brazil: Getting Out and About in the Capital
Brasilia is a smaller and less crowded city than Rio de Janeiro and pedestrians are granted right of way here.
Although people mainly drive, buses are used whereever possible and these serve the city centre. Other ways to get out and about in the city are by taxi or via the underground, which serves the biggest satellite cities such as Samambaia, Ceilandia and Taguatinga.
Brasilia International Airport is the third busiest in Brazil and flies to all of the main Brazilian cities as well as to many world-wide destinations.
