A must see place

Nice view of the Paranoá Lake. A breath-taking sunset. (Especially if you have the right company). The JK bridge is one of Brasilia's post-cards.

It is as beautiful as people say, but... Its maintenance has been neglected so much that... Its painting is never nice and sometimes there are a few roles which prevent some of its lanes to be open for regular traffic...

One of Brasilia's monuments. Beautiful bridge, with people exercising/running on its sides and the nice Paranoa Lake on the scenario.

This bridge serves the city beautifully. It connects is very nicely, and suits the architecture very well. I always enjoy driving over it.

Delightful modern bridge, very functional also. Particularly attractive as one drives towards it and the arches appear to move, apparently to resemble waves. Yet another Brasilia work of art.

One of the most beautiful beautiful bridge in the world. Beautiful architecture. There are some restaurants near there; however, they are very pricey.

We sat on QI 23 on the hilltop with a great view of JK bridge at 11:45 pm. All around us were people in cars with champagne. The 3 loops of the bridge glowed in the night sky and the Fireworks at midnight New Years Eve were spectacular! They glimmered on the water and made the JK look like a... More

Many visitors think it was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, but it was not. And it overran its budget by 300 per cent (the locals are still paying for it) and now needs cleaning. Neverthless, an impressive sight from the access roads, particularly at night.

I love going down to the JK at especially at night when its all lit up it takes on a whole different look and can be seen from different parts of the city with the lights shinnying on it. There is a little park down by the bridge where kids can play and several restaurants that you can try out.... More

When a bridge is not a bridge? When it's an architectural gem. It is a statement bridge really worth your time
