Throughout the country of Brazil there are many beautiful cities, yet they don’t always get the attention they deserve. If you are planning a trip in the near future, you may want to stay out of the obvious tourist-focused cities like Rio and instead try one of the other cities that are just as beautiful but with half the crowds. Many of these places have stayed off the radar simply because they are not as popular among tourists, while some can be a little hard to get to as there are no airports directly into them. If you want to rent a car or don’t mind taking public transit, however, they are more than worth seeing.

8. Salvador, Bahia

The city of Salvador sits in Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia and was the first colonial capital of the country. It’s also one of the oldest cities in both North and South America. The colorful colonial architecture adds to the city’s reputation as a place of happiness and celebration. Salvador’s street carnival is known as the largest in the world  so if that’s a draw for your tourist time, head south to the state of Bahia.

7. Curitiba, Paraná

Unlike many popular Brazilian cities, Curitiba sits inland, away from the coastline and consequently, the beaches that make the country so popular. Despite this, the city if Curitiba has much to offer in terms of attractions, especially if you’re into art and nature. The Botanical Garden of Curitiba is one of the most popular places to visit in this city and offers a serene French-inspired nature escape. Also popular is the Oscar Niemeyer Museum which focus on visual arts, architecture and design.
