/ Amazonas Brazil
Manaus is the capital city of the state of Amazonas. It is situated at the confluence of the Negro and Solimões rivers. Located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, its access to the city is primarily through boat or airplane. This isolation helps in preserving both the nature as well as the culture of the city. Maunas is also a seat venue, hosting some of the football matches for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
