Marvelous City of Rio de Janeiro

Known as “Cidade Maravilhosa” or Marvelous City, Rio de Janeiro is one of the world’s brightest, most famous, colorful, and joyful cities in the world. By the way, Rio de Janeiro is translated into English as “River of January”. World’s biggest carnivals, samba dancing, rhythms of Bossa Nova, bright football, perfect sandy beaches, the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer – these is only a small fraction of things, which made this city a world known with inimitable atmosphere, authentic climate and unique people. The city is considered to be the citadel of joy, happiness, cheerfulness, openness, and sincerity.

If you have never been to Rio de Janeiro, the gallery of photographs, featuring this marvelous city, will help you understand and, maybe, even feel the atmosphere, reigning there. We have collected different pictures – from the grandeur architecture and monuments to vivid moments of Brazilian carnivals and to the pictures of life far from joy and happiness of mass celebrations. As any other city with global importance, Rio de Janeiro is the city of contrasts. Pictures below will show you those contrasts, but it is up to you to decide what prevails there – a world-known well-crafted image of Rio de Janeiro or some unadvertised and unrevealed faces of Rio…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
