Rio de Janeiro is a city in Brazil, the biggest country in South America.

The country of Brazil is nearly as big as the continent of Europe!

The River Amazon flows through Brazil, which is the longest river in the world.

Animals such as jaguars, sloths and piranahs live in the river and the jungle around it.

Lots of people love to visit Rio de Janeiro on their holidays.

Tourists can surf at Copacabana Beach, play football in the sun, walk up Sugarloaf Mountain and join in the Rio Carnival.
