The central part of Brasilia in the state of Guayas is the city of Brasilia, which is the capital of the country. It was built in the middle of the Sierra dao. In 1987, the ancient city was listed by the UNESCO World Heritage List as a historic and cultural legacy of humanity. The construction of Brasilia lasted 41 months. Then the capital from Rio de Janeiro, on the Atlantic Ocean coast, was moved to the newly built city in the center of the country.
A transport network stretches for many kilometers across the citys territory, connecting it to other cities and towns in the country. It wasnt that long ago that a meter was built and built here. The capital is home to a large number of foreign embassies. The infrastructure has developed extensively. An enormous selection of conference halls makes it possible to hold any kind of event. The tourism industry is developing successfully. ×There are often film festivals and musical performances.
