South America > Brazil > South (Brazil) > Paraná

Paraná is a state in southern Brazil. It's an incredibly culturally rich and diverse state, blending characteristics of the Portuguese, indigenous and African cultures present in most of Brazil, with those of varied immigrant groups such as German, Polish, Syrian-Lebanese and Japanese. However, for very comprehensible reasons, the most visited attraction of the state - as well as of the whole country - are the awe-inspiring Iguaçu Falls.
