Brazil, Samba, Carnival and Spectacular Nature

Monday, July 23, 2012

Even though many carnivals are celebrated in other towns and villages throughout Brazil and other Catholic countries, Rio de Janeiro has long been regarded as the carnival capital of the world.

The Rio Carnival is the biggest carnival and one of the most interesting artistic events on the planet.

Rio Carnival is a wild 4 day celebration, 40 days before Easter. It usually happens in February, which is the hottest month and the Rio summer is at its peak.
