Rio 2016; Transportation system

In 2016, thousands of tourists from Brazil and abroad will arrive in Rio de Janeiro to follow the Olympic and Paralympic Games. As the events take place in four different zones — Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro, and Maracanã — a fast and efficient transportation system is crucial to ensure that visitors, athletes and residents alike do not miss a single moment of competition. The BRTs (Bus Rapid Transit) were created to shorten these distances and reduce travel time throughout the city.

PyeongChang 2018; PyeongChang House in Sochi





PyeongChang 2018 is proudly presenting itself to the world, by showcasing the best features of the host city and the Republic of Korea at PyeongChang House, located just near the footbridge leading up to the center of the Sochi Olympic Park. The design of PyeongChang House is inspired by the traditional Korean house, called hanok.

The main exhibition at PyeongChang House will cover the culture of PyeongChang and Gangwon Province, as well as Korea’s long history, PyeongChang 2018’s vision, “New Horizons” and the progress made in our Games preparation.

Visitors to PyeongChang House will also enjoy dance performances, getting the sense of a great balance between the traditional and modern (B-Boy dance, K-pop) culture assets of Korea.
