Nicknamed Cidade Sorriso (the Smile City), Niterói is just a short ride from downtown Rio across the Guanabara Bay. The city was founded in 1573 and was until 1975 the capital of the old state of Guanabara. To reach Niterói from Rio, there are two options: taking a ferry, or driving through the famous, 13 km long bridge, Ponte Rio-Niterói that connects the two cities.
Though lacking the splendour of the city of Rio, Niterói, with a population of half a million, has a busy commercial centre, an important museum, one of the state's most beautiful beaches, Itacoatiara, and lively nightlife - well worth a visit, as it's also the gateway to the Costa do Sol to the east. The city's main attraction is certainly the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói (Niterói Museum of Contemporary Art), designed by the famous Brazilian modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer.
