Along with approximately 550 thousand inhabitants, Joinville holds an interesting fact: it is the only city that is the largest at a state (Santa Catarina), but is not its capital in Brazil.
Joinville plays an important rule at the Santa Catarina Economy. The city is an important industrial, financial and commerce center. Most of its population descents from the German and the traditional German food, beer and architecture (visible at the city portal) are easy to be spotted at the city.
Moreover, Joinville is a charming city that has everything that a big city has, but also provides more quality of life for those that live there. Approximately 2 hours away from Curitiba and from Blumenau by bus, Joinville is also famous for having one of the strongest futsal (five a side) teams in Brazil.
