it is a very beautiful building made out of logs, you can go up and see parts of the city and the lake down there. It is nice but has nothing to do, nowhere to eat and no attractions other than this building. I suggest you to go if you have a long stay in Curitiba

It has an awesome view and a breathtaking finishing to the initial path. I would recommend to go there in the morning, in a sunny day! Go chase the black swan!

Unilivre is not too big, but it's (along with Tanguá) the prettiest park in Curitiba. You enter through a small path in the woods and get to the view of a lake protected by a tall rock wall. You won't spend too much time here, but it's definitely worthy of a visit

This is a very very special place, a perfect composition of how humans can design in harmony with, and in celebration of, nature. Located in the centre of Curitiba, on experiencing a visit to this paradise you understand why the city is rightly called by many “the most sustainable city on Earth”. Set amongst 37,000m2 of wild and lush native... More

It is a beautiful place but rather small. Well worth the visit. Some of the biggest poi I have ever seen and a stop for migratory birds, which at the right times of the year makes it look wonderful.

The architecture is curious. It is all based on old electricity wooden poles, making for intriguing geometrical patterns. The "academic" part is ineffective and a waste, but the architecture is really worth visiting.

you will never imagine what it is about until you enter there, the entrance is amazing but more amazing is when you pass by the rain-forest and get to the lake in the middle of nowhere and the beautiful wood construction in total harmony with the environment, beautiful experience, beautiful view, beautiful pictures can be taken there...

The entrance is on bridge over a little river, and has a good garden with panoramic view at the top of the university class rooms
