BH

Belo Horizonte is a Brazilian city, capital of the state of Minas Gerais, belonging to the metropolitan mesoregion of Belo Horizonte and to the microregion of Belo Horizonte. With an area of approximately 330 km2, it offers a diverse geography, with hills and plains. It is 716 km away from Brasília, the national capital.

Surrounded by the Serra do Curral (“Curral Mountain Range”), which works as a natural and historical frame, the city was planned and built to be the political and administrative of the Minas Gerais state under a positivist influence, during a time when the country was under a strong republican set of ideals. It suffered a sudden population growth, reaching over 1 million inhabitants after 70 years of its foundation. Between 1930 and 1940, there was also a boost in industrialization, in addition to a growth of modernist constructions, most notably those of the Cidade Jardim neighborhood, which helped define the physiognomy of Belo Horizonte.

According to the most recent census (2010) from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, Belo Horizonte has a population of 2,375,444 inhabitants, the sixth most populated city in the country. BH has already been nominated by the Population Crisis Committee of the UN as the metropolis with greater life quality of Latin America, and the 45th best city in the world. Today, BH has the fifth biggest GDP among Brazilian cities, accounting for 1.38% of the total national production. Further evidence of the development of the city is its classification according to the América Economía magazine (2009), which nominates BH as one of the ten best cities in Latin America to conduct a business in, the second best of Brazil, followed by cities such as Rio, Brasília, and Curitiba.

Belo Horizonte is internationally acknowledged and poses a cultural, economical, and political influence both nationally and internationally. It offers important monuments, parks, and museums, such as the Museu de Arte da Pampulha, the Museu de Artes e Ofícios, the Museu de CiênciasNaturais da PUC Minas, the Circuito Cultural Praça da Liberdade, the Conjunto Arquitetônico da Pampulha, the Central Market, and Savassi, as well as events of great repercussion, such as the Festival Creamfields Brasil, the Festival Internacional de Teatro, Palco e Rua (FIT-BH), the Festival Internacional de Curtas, and the Encontro Internacional de Literaturas em Língua Portuguesa. It is nationally known as the “capital of botecos”, (“neighborhood bars”).
