Take 20 minutes for a pit stop.

Nice place for a pit stop during your city tour. There is a nice pizza restaurant right in front the bridge and the lake. Very good for dinner.

JK Bridge is a 1200 metre long steel and concrete bridge crossing Lake Paranoa. The bridge was completed in 2002 and is probably best viewed either from the eastern shore of the lake or by driving over the bridge. The bridge decks are suspended by steel cables alternating at each side of the bridge-this gives the bridge its unique look.... More

looked to me like a big McDonald sign but it is a nice landmark which can be seen for miles around even as you fly in

It's a beautiful bridge. The arcs are imposing but it lacks a better conservation. It's one of the new Brasilia's landmarks.

Visit it both close by and from the distance. Enjoy it by daylight, at sunset and at night. From the east and from the west shores. Mingle with the populace on the west side. See it from far away by the Alvorada Palace or by the Digital TV tower!

Almost all achitects want to design a bridge before they die and Alexandre Chan came up with a wonderful design with the collaboration of Mario Verde the structural engineer. It dominates the lake and the views are spectacular. As a sailor I can say it looks as good from the water as it does from the land, but perhaps It's... More

Built in 2002, this bridge is a new stunning addition to the city. 1,200m long, it crosses Lake Paranoá from the eastern suburban shore to the Monumental Axis in downtown Brasilia. Designed by Alexandre Chan, a Chinese-Brazilian architect, it was called after President Juscelino Kubitschek (JK), who initiated the founding of Brasilia. This bridge has already received a few awards... More
