Curitiba is the capital of the state of Parana in Brazil. It is a large city with 1.8 million people, making it the 7th largest city in Brazil and the largest in Southern Brazil. The metropolitan area totals over 3.5 million people.
The city is located at 932 meters above sea level, making it relatively cool compared to other major cities in Brazil. Its climate is subtropical, with mild, wet winters and warm summers. But summer weather is not blistering hot. The highest temperature ever recoreded in the city is 35.6 degrees celsius, or 96.1 farenheight, and the summer average is around 21 degrees. The winter average is around 13 degrees. Winter nights and mornings can be cool and even cold. Snow has fallen a few times this century but not often.
Moreso than many other major cities in Brazil, Curitiba has a large majority of Brazilians of European descent. After the city was originally conquered by Portugese colonists, European immigrants from other countries including Germany, Ukraine, and Poland.
