About the City


The city is known across the globe for good reason. Talented urban planners, together with residents' determination to achieve quality of life, have led to a modern, organized and charming city. The urban solutions the city has created for its own people delight visitors: these include the transport system, environmental care, social welfare projects and attention to education. The huge parks and woods of the capital, the modern monuments and manifestations of the rich ethnic variety enchant tourists. Culture occupies a pivotal place in city life.

There is always a rich program on offer in a range of theaters, cinemas, exhibition rooms, ethnic portals, celebrations and museums. From street fairs to haute cuisine, Curitiba is a city to please every palate. Curitiba nightlife also has a lot to offer. From the Marco Zero milestone to the most distant neighborhood, poetry and concrete mix, generating an encounter between the present and the future.

Curitiba is the national benchmark in quality of life, urban innovation, culture and cuisine. The capital of Paraná blends the frantic pace of a metropolis with constant concern for the environment, preservation of historic heritage and improving citizenship.

Curitiba is a beautiful and stimulating city, known for the genuine and creative solutions it finds for resolving urban problems. Tradition and modernity complement each other in a place that started out in the 17th century as a gold mining camp, was on the muleteers route, and took in thousands of Polynesian, Italian, Japanese, Ukrainian, German and other immigrants from various backgrounds.

To get to know the soul of Curitiba, you need to visit its parks. There are 64.5 m2 of green spaces per inhabitant. They were designed with the three-fold purpose of preserving the native woodland, creating new leisure areas for the population and draining excess rainwater, putting an end to flooding.

Paulo Leminski Quarry
