Founded in 1565, Rio de Janeiro is the last capital and the second most populous  city in Brazil. Part of the city has been designate at the UNESCO World Heritage List, named “Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Ladscapes between the mountain and the  sea.” Land of many universities and institutes, it is the second largest center of  research and development in Brazil, accounting for 17 percent of national  scientific output, and it is the first national oil producer.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the South America, being well known for its natural settings, as the Christ the Redeemer (named of the new  seven wonders of the world), Maracanã Stadium, Sugarloaf Mountain. It also comprises some of the world’s most famous beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema and  Leblon) and the world’s largest urban forest – Tijuca National Park – with an area  of over 4,200 ha exhibiting lakes, fountains, historical sites, and extraordinary  native flora and fauna. Rio de Janeiro is also the birthplace of important Brazilian  cultural expressions, such as samba, bossa-nova, and chorinho.

The region where The National Observatory is located is close to downtown, but Rio’s tourist attractions and nightlife are in the south zone, from Flamengo to Leblon.
