People use to say Curitiba is a piece of europe lost in the south america. The Flowers Street has lost of elements from the beginning of the city. All the buildings and even the sidewalks send you back to the time when the red-train was still working and lots of mans using dark hats used to walk in that street... More

After walking along busy streets I enjoyed casually strolling Rua 24 Horas, listening to the musicians, watching the performers, window shopping, soaking in the beauty of Praca Rui Barbosa.

Jaime Lerner convinced us all, or the hype surrounding Curitiba convinced us all that the Flowers Street was the first pedestrian shopping street in Latin America. Well, perhaps it is, but there seems little out of the ordinary here. Simply no cars allowed, which is good. Real good.

Rua das Flores is one of the main attractions of Curitiba, Brazil. It has many little shops, cafes and restaurants. There are many places to shop and places to grab a bite to eat. The main part of this street stretches from Rua Presidente Faria to the Praca Osorio. Depending on when you visit, you may even get to see... More

This pedestrian-only boulevard gives a big cosmopolitan touch to the city, Lot of shopping, open air coffee shops and restaurants attracts visitors and locals. On Saturdays find artists selling paintings and handcrafts, few street entertainers as well. Same day the city offers diverse games and fun for children.

Heart of the city, where people from all social classes and origins meet each other. A place to see the real life of the residents. The town would not be the same without this street.

Very nice place to enjoy a nice walk in safe and pretty surroundings. Conveniently surrounded by many stores, so you can buy souvenirs, clothes, supplies--anything you need! Located close to the historic sector of the city, so it is a great way to spend part of a day, whether you travel for business or pleasure.

This is my favorite place to walk, to shop to look around and to listen to gossipers. We find all kind of people on the street. Curitiba is famous for the beautiful girls in the country and you can find many around.

In a first glance it looks like just another pedestrian street but if you spend a little more time you can discover Boca Maldita, where citizens use to reune to discuss the government and politicians acts! The rocks that compound the pavement form beautiful Araucaria seeds arrangments and over them artists offer their art. At Christmas time crowds attend to... More
