finding a furnished apartment
my family and i are planning to relocate to curitiba. i am in need of realtors to show me some furnished apartments, or perhaps names of places that would be suitable for a family. location is important, as is safety. also coming with 2 small children. how can i look for a reliable "baba". planning to be there 3dec 05.
RE: RE: finding a furnished apartment
have you tried looking in the local jornais? estado do parana for example, im not sure what newspapers there is in curitiba but you should be able to find an immobiliara over the internet.
I live in Londrina, not too far from Curitiba, but I have never been there. As for baba, that should be in the apper too. otherwise you can always ask around. Curious question: where are you from? are u brazilian?

Ucranian Memorial Park
Curitiba has a variety of influences due to the immigrant waves that began to settle in the surroundings of the old town from mid 1800's.
One of the biggest communities in the city is the ucranian, and the ucranians have also a place dedicated to them in this beautiful town: Tingui Park.
me and one of my best friends Carlise
this park is very relaxing
although it has some modern architecture like the white one u see in the pic, i find it very simple and nature is so abundant that u don't really mind seeing something so modern inside
Curitiba - the green lung of SB
"The green City"
Curitiba is the capital of the state Parana and pretends to be the best gouverned city in Brazil.
The previous mayor - an architect gave this city the actual look out !
This City in South Brasil is an example of "green policy".
- In the streets - every pedestrian has priority.
- More than 150km Bicycle roads are forseen
- The Mall is forbidden entrance for cars - except busses
- The famous "Flower road" in the center of Curitiba reminds me on "La Rambla in Barcelona".
- Income to Bus stations are unique and an example for many cities in the world.
- Approx. 50m2 green area is forseen per inhabitant.
(BTW The city counts about 1.3 mil.inhabitants!!)
