Well, that was hardly a surprise. But when you see LONG lines outside the relatively small building, DO NOT GO IN! It was dark, noisy, and FULL OF PEOPLE, so synonym of a nightmare for me. I can imagine it would be absolutely lovely if...More

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and
structures that once were the home of all the Expo's
attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
