Between February 24th and 28th, Rio de Janeiro and the whole Brazil goes out into the streets to celebrate the most popular event in the Brazilian Culture: The Carnival 2017. The Carnival is so important for the Brazilian people that they spend an entire year preparing the event and the samba.
Rio Carnival is very well-known worldwide and per year, this town receives thousands of visitors to enjoy and participate in the biggest and the most popular Brazilian Holliday. The festivities will start on Friday night and it finishes on the Shrove Tuesday.
The seafront of the so-called Zona Sul is by far the most pleasant place to stay in Rio de Janeiro since it is the most touristic part of the city. Copacabana and Ipanema together form a great stage, offering a carnival that happens in every corner.
The roots of Carnival date back to ancient Romans and the Greeks who celebrated the rites of spring. Across Europe, in countries like France, Spain, and Portugal, people annually gave thanks at parties wearing masks and dancing in the streets.
The Portuguese people were the first to bring the concept of “carnival” to Rio de Janeiro in 1850, but the practice of holding balls and masquerade parties was imported by the city’s bourgeoisie from Paris. However, in Brazil, the traditions soon became different and over time, they acquired unique elements deriving from African and Amerindian cultures.
Do not loose the Carnival Parade at the Sambódromo, where the schools of Samba will show all the work they have performed during the year.
