The Olympic Boulevard of Rio

The Olympic Boulevard of Rio

One of the massive successes of RIO 2016 has been the Olympic Boulevard, in the rejuvenated port district, which boasts an Olympic flame, live music on three stages, a hot air balloon, bungee jumping, food trucks and a number of big screens showing the Olympics.

The Olympic Boulevard is to be one of the key legacies for RIO 2016 as it is located in the newly developed port area, called Porto Maravilha, which had fallen into ruin in recent years.

There are many attractions on Olympic Boulevard, but one in particular has stood out this week. A model of the city of Rio de Janeiro, made of nearly one million Lego bricks, has been a big hit with the public.
