If you believe or not, the JK Bridge is also known as the most beautuflll bridge in the world, it's only compared with the pedestrian bridge of the public aquarium at the port of Nagoya, Japan.
The original geometrical structure create a vertiginous sense of harmony.
One of the greatest thing you can do in Brasilia is come here during the afternoon, with the sunset when the light are turning on.
It was named after the ex president Kubitschek the one who decided to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia, well, Kubitschek was actually the one who started the project of this city.

Beautiful architecture and next to it there is a small lake beach for the ones who like sports and lying on the floor.

The JK bridge was built over lago Paranoá and it has the shape of the arches a rock does when it hits the water. The road is entirely suspended by the arches.

In honor of the president who funded Brasilia, the bridge received the name of Ponte Juscelino Kubitschek (JK). It's a great program for a late afternoon to take pictures, have some coconut water or just enjoy the view.

Ótima vista do lago, possibilita a ligação de diversos condomínios residenciais com o centro da cidade. É a ponte mais nova do Lago Paranoá.
