Fans from all around the world come to Brazil for soccer and tourism. Among the 12 venues for the FIFA World Cup, one is unique: Brasilia. The city was built 50 years ago in the country's central highlands to replace Rio de Janeiro as Brazil's capital. Brasilia is an architectural gem envisioned by renowned Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer. VOA's Jim Randle narrates for correspondent Nicolas Pinault who visited the city.
