  The new Ferryboat Station in Niteroi by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

Niteroi and Rio are growing bigger each year, so problems like traffic jams are very common in the cities, in the rush hour, the ferry boats are really useful. We have a new ferry boat station with fast catamarans which leaves downton Rio to Charitas, famous neighborhood of Niteroi close to the most popular districts in the city either to the Bay Area or the Ocean Region.

Very useful place, and the Ferryboat Station has the project of the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer.

The Station was contructed this year and it is still working, the design is very modern and there are nice restaurant and shops in the place!

Very impressive construction which fits alot with the natural landscapes!
