Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and covers almost half of South America. The Amazonas rain forests and high plateaus shape the country, the largest part of the population lives in metropolises near the Atlantic coast. Brazil’s climate is predominantly tropical, but sometimes there’s also snow in the higher regions.
