Niterói is located in the other side of the Guanabara Bay, only 13Km away from Rio de Janeiro. It is a pleasant surprise for tourists, a beautiful city with 11km of beaches and many cultural attractions.
Except from Brasilia, there is no other place that shelters so many projects from the architect Oscar Niemeyer. The most famous one is the Contemporary Museum of Art (MAC), considered by different international publications as “one of the seven wonders of the contemporary world”. Other Niemeyer works are: Popular Teather, Science Museum, JK Square, Petrobras Cinema Center and Olimpo restaurant.
Visits can also be made at Santa Cruz Fortress and City Park, both with amazing views, where it is possible to enjoy a different angle of Rio.
