Brasília isn't your typical coastal Brazilian city. This planned metropolis rests in the central highlands of the country, far from the beaches. Nicknamed the "Pilot City," Brasília was purposefully built in the 1950s to be the new capital of Brazil. The city is known for its modern architecture and futuristic urban design.
