    Carnaval in Petropolis

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 13, 2005

    When I visited Petropolis (on the Tuesday after Carnaval in Rio) I noticed that Petropolis was also having Carnaval celabrations at the same time. This photo was taken looking down Rua do Imperador at the junction where the obelisk is located. This must be the main area where the carnaval celebrations take place.

    Brazilian Urinals

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't be surprised when you find this thing (in the picture) in men's bathroom. I was confused when I saw it for the first time in Brazil. This is a Brazilian urinal. I'm not sure whether it's because that I'm a city boy or that I'm from the States, I've just never seen one of these before.

    Brazilian breakfast

    Brazilian breakfasts may not be as filling as those to which my fellow Americans are accustomed, but they are notable. The consist of ham (usually thinly sliced), bread, all manner of local fruits (including mangoes), and all manner of fruit juices (including, but not limited to, guava, passion and peach). That together with a cafezinho, guaranteed to add a spring in your step, rounds out the typical Brazilian breakfast.

    Bohemia: Local Beer since 1853

    Icy Bohemia beer....

    Due to the heavy German migration to Petrópolis in mid-S. XIX, their favorite drink was also brought with them. Bohemia Brewery was founded in Petrópolis in 1853, and after one century and a half it became not only the favorite in the region so far, but also the first Brazilian brewery brand. Now it belongs to the Antarctica group.

    Local Sweet: Chocolates Patrone

    Factory of Patrone chocolates

    Chocolates Patrone is a local factory that produces all types of home-made-type chocolates well known and recognized in the region. Personally I loved the dark ones, while the white ones tasted a bit strange to me. You can also drink chocolate, one of the most delicious I've ever had!
    In the factory you will also find a corner to buy several Petropolis souvenirs.
