Things to Do in Curitiba

Barigui Park
Ducks might be a common sight in many city parks, but when'€™s the last time you saw a Capybara? Dozens of these giant rodents graze the lakeside lawns in Curitiba Barigui Park, which buzzes with local joggers and people rollerblading every weekend. For a laid-back afternoon, find a spot on the grass, sip on some fresh coconut water, and soak up the atmosphere.
Curitiba Botanical Garden
It might look like the landscaped grounds of some millionaire'€™s mansion, but this pristine public park is open to all. The centerpiece of the Curitiba Botanical Garden is a giant Art Nouveau greenhouse filled with native tropical plants. Around it, beautifully maintained flowerbeds burst with color and peaceful walking paths go past trees, fountains and ponds filled with local wildlife.
Bosque de Portugal
As the name suggests, this Curitiba park celebrates the Portuguese language and the countries that speak it. Bosque de Portugal's central monument includes pillars dedicated to legendary Lusophone poets – from Luís Vaz de Camões to Camilo Pessanha. And a walk through the surrounding shaded paths reveals their best-known verses painted on traditional ceramic tiles.
Bosque Joao Paulo II
This beautiful park celebrates Curitiba'€™s Eastern European heritage. Known locally as Bosque do Papa,€“ the Pope'€™s Forest, Bosque Joao Paulo II was opened to coincide with a 1980 Papal visit. The open-air museum reconstructs the daily lives of immigrants in the 1870s, while a Polish church, tea room, and cultural events still serve their descendants today.
Botanical Garden of Curitiba
In Curitiba—a city known for its parks—the botanical garden stands above them all. Modeled on traditional French ones, it’s 2.6 million square feet of green lawns, beautifully-kept hedgerows, and colorful flowerbeds. The centerpiece is the greenhouse, a three-domed glass building that is home to all kinds of plant life from around the world.
Greenhouse of the Botanical Garden
This magnificent glass building is the symbol of Curitiba and a city icon too. It’s an Art Nouveau greenhouse with three domes, lit up at night in vivid colors. Under its beautifully curved roof lies a treasure trove of tropical plants, with a trickling stream running through it.
Barigüi Park
The most famous green park of Curitiba and a popular meeting point for friends and relatives on weekends.
24 Hours Street
A small shopping mall open 24 hours located in the centre of the city.

Very Good
Curitiba is a great city in Brasil but don't have many things to do as a turist. The best thing to do is to go for a dinner! Food is very good and there are many choices. They are very priced though!
