2014 World Cup Brazil - Host city Salvador   

Quick facts about Salvador:

Salvador is the largest city on the north-east coast of Brazil and is known as 'Brazil's capital of happiness' due to its easy going, party loving population. The city is a mish mash of Afro-Brazilian culture and Portuguese colonial architecture and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Salvador has over 30 miles of beaches with varied conditions suitable for all beach pursuits. The city coast is dominated by All Saint's Bay - the largest bay in Brazil, covering 1100 square kilometres. Boats can be taken to some of the bay's 56 islands where small fishing villages and beach side bars can be discovered.

Salvador is a well established tourist destination and offers plenty of hotel and guesthouse accommodation. With good shopping facilities and parkland, as well as an inner city forest area, Salvador is an excellent location for World Cup visitors to enjoy their stay.

Salvador, also known as Salvador da Bahia, has a tropical rainforest climate providing warm temperatures all year round and plenty of precipitation - particularly in the winter months when World Cup games will be played in the city.

Salvador-Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhaes International Airport, also known as Dois de Julho International Airport, services Salvador and lies around 12 miles from the city centre. The airport is a busy hub for internal flight transfers and also provides international connections to Europe and the rest of the world.

The Salvador Metro system is currently under construction as part of a wider project to improve urban mobility. Bus services will also be integrated into the system making the airport, suburban areas and beaches more easily accessible.
