Curitiba is situated at an altitude of 1,000 meters, because of this it is one of the coldest cities in Brazil. The city is the largest and one of the most important cities in the southern tip of Brazil. Curitiba is a melting pot of cultures; people from all over the world have come to live here. Because of this architectural styles from all over the world can be found in the city. The oldest university of Brazil, the university of Praná was founded here in 1912. The surroundings of Curitiba mainly consist of tropical forests, Araucaria wet forests to be precise. In 2014 Curitiba is a host city for the soccer world championships.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
