Rio de Janeiro is not the capital of Brasil as many people believe. But it is one of the most important economic and social anchors in this large Southern American country. Rio de Janeiro is also known for the Statue of Jesus as well as the Copacabana but also for the Brazilian carnival. Carnival in Brazil means lots of Samba dancers, colorful parades and jovial events on the streets.
