Rio de Janeiro: Commonly known as just "Rio" the city is also nicknamed A Cidade Marvilhosa -
"The Marvellous City".
"River of January" - so originally called - arose from Gaspar de Lemos, who discovered the bay on January 1, 1502 and who by mistake took it for the outward opening of a big stream.
The population of Rio de Janeiro adds up to 6.1 million people (2006) and 11.6 million within the area of the metropolis (2005).
