Downstream on the Upper Amazon with Zodiac landings
Where the extraordinary is at home
| Thu, 05.05.2016 |
The river of life carries you further downstream towards the capital of the Brazilian federal state of Amazonas: Manaus. The city in the middle of the rainforest is home to magnificent treasures such as the Teatro Amazonas, whose splendid interior with crystal chandeliers and marble portals was transported here from Europe. Its construction was made possible by the proceeds from the rubber boom during the 19th century. An excursion to the city’s history and opera house* brings to life the history of the former Portuguese fortress and missionary base. The seventh biggest city in Brazil and the Meeting of the Waters can be seen on from an especially spectacular perspective on an aerial tour above Manaus*.
