Salvador is the old capital of Brazil (1549-1763). It is located on a peninsula that embraces the Bay of All Saints on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The city is the main one in the eastern state of Bahia. The area is visually divided into "Upper" and "Lower," the historical and business centers. They are connected by a unique structure — a two-tower Lacerda Elevator. It is partly situated in the body of a mountain. The climbing time to the height of 50 m is only 30 seconds. Be sure to visit the Cidade Baixa district, where you will find one of Brazil's oldest palaces and the most beautiful building in Salvador — Rio Branco Palace (1549). From here, you will have a breathtaking view of the Lower Town and the coast. Nature lovers will be delighted by the Costa Azul Park. There is a theater, a football field, bicycle rental, bars, and restaurants. One of the things worth trying in Salvador is the feijoada (meat with beans, cassava flour, and hot sauce). There are several dozens of excellent beaches in the city. Every year in February, Salvador becomes a venue for the biggest street carnival in the world.
