Well, you can try and imagine what that would feel like?or you can just visit Brasilia, Brazil. Brasilia is, perhaps, one of the most unique cities in the world. Celebrating the progress and power of Brazil, Brasilia is a masterfully planned and executed city. What was once an empty, sprawling desert took only five years to become the masterpiece it is today. Everything about Brasilia was thought through-from the architecture to the city layout to the residents who reside there. Everything has its place including extravagant shopping, modern buildings, natural beauties (such as natural swimming pools, waterfalls, and city parks), cultural spectacles, and tourists hoping to get a taste of tradition mixed with innovation.
