Living in Curitiba

The largest city in the Brazilian state of Parana, Curitiba is often called 'Pine Nut Land', or 'the smiling city'. The population of the wider metropolitan area was recently recorded at over 3.2 million, making it the seventh largest in Brazil. Walking around the city is a good way to get your bearings, exploring all of the cultural landmarks, and learning a bit about the people who live there. For lovers of flora and fauna you can visit the beautiful botanic gardens - relax on a bench, or explore the stunning, expansive grounds. Pedreiras park is another park with a unique tubular structure that has a transparent ceiling. Expats living in Curitiba might find the city daunting at first, with its baffling cultural differences, and at times overwhelming population size, but there are members of the InterNations’ expatriate community who will be glad to share their experiences with other like-minded international travelers and help you out this way.

Moving to Curitiba

Curitiba City is Brazil's 8th most populous city, and the number of people who live there is growing every day. The influx of people moving there could be due to its subtropical highland climate, where temperatures average out at 18 degrees Celsius in the day. Moving to any new home is hard, and it's even trickier if you're moving overseas for the first time, however, InterNations exists to make your relocation abroad and expat life in general easier. Thousands of expatriates post in the InterNations forums and discussion boards about living abroad or discuss topics such as fashion, politics, science, technology and navigating the internet. No matter what your query about moving to Curitiba is, you can be sure there's an InterNations forum post or discussion thread that can help or a fellow expatriate you can ask.

Working in Curitiba

Whether you're an expat moving to Curitiba specifically for work, or you are thinking about making a fresh start, the InterNations community will be able to point you in the right direction. Curitiba has gone through many changes since it was made capital of Parana, and has become known as a great example of cities controlling unplanned growth before it happens. Today, it is one of the country's biggest industrial exporters, relying heavily on industry, commerce and services. The city is the most popular in Brazil amongst foreign investors as a direct result of its international business acclaim. If you are interested in opening up your own business in Curitiba, you might want to take a look at our Expat Magazine. One of the articles touches on opening a business abroad, explaining how it's easy to underestimate the financial and emotional pressures that you might come across. There are so many rules and laws that you will have to deal with, that you could get overwhelmed with information and call it quits before you even begin rolling out your business empire. The InterNations articles offer invaluable pieces of wisdom and tips to get you past any initial painful proceedings not only in connection to your own business but expatriation in general.

    As I already met several expat women on InterNations online, it was great to meet offline and get to know each other in real life.
