According to itypeusa, Brazil is a country located in the eastern part of South America, bordered by Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. It has a population of around 208 million people and covers an area of 8.5 million square kilometers. The official language is Portuguese although other languages such as Spanish and English are also spoken. Brazil has a tropical climate with hot summers and mild winters. The economy is largely based on agriculture, industry and services with coffee being one of the main sources of income for many people. Brazil also has a rich cultural heritage due to its diverse population which includes several ethnic groups such as Afro-Brazilians, Europeans, Amerindians and Asians. The capital city is Brasilia while other major cities include Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Salvador. Brazil also boasts some of the best beaches in the world such as Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro or Praia do Forte near Salvador which are both great for sunbathing or swimming in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to its natural beauty and rich culture, Brazil also offers some great opportunities for adventure activities such as trekking through Amazon rainforest or surfing along the northeast coast. Brazil is located in the Brasília Time Zone, which is three hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+3). This time zone is shared with other countries such as Bolivia, Chile and Paraguay. During Daylight Saving Time (DST), clocks are moved forward one hour to UTC+4. DST begins on the second Sunday in October and ends on the third Sunday of February each year. Brazil is also part of the Amazon Summer Time (AMT) Zone, which is four hours ahead of UTC during DST. Most countries in South America observe DST from October to February each year, so Brazil follows suit. During this time period, it shares its time zone with other countries such as Colombia and Venezuela. Clocks are moved back one hour to UTC+3 when DST ends in February. In addition to observing Daylight Saving Time along with other parts of South America, Brazil also observes certain holidays with special times or exceptions to its standard time zone. For example, on New Year’s Day all clocks are moved forward by one hour for an additional hour of daylight savings time. On Easter Sunday (April 4th), all clocks are moved back by two hours so that people can attend church services earlier at night; this is known as “Easter Miracle” or “Little Easter” in some parts of Brazil.
