Minimize Arena da Baixada, Curitiba

This Pleiades image, acquired 29 January 2014, shows the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil.

This stadium began construction in 1997 and was completed two years later in 1999. It was built on the same site as a previous stadium constructed in 1914, which had been demolished to be replaced with the new one. Since then, the Arena da Baixada has been renovated a number of times, mostly recently for the 2014 World Cup. The football club Atlético Paranaense own the stadium and it currently hosts a capacity for approximately 39,000 people.

The Arena da Baixada is located in Curitaba, which is situated in southern Brazil. The city has an estimated population of 1.7 million and was founded by Portuguese settlers in 1693.

The city has a reputation for being clean, organised and modern, and is a popular destination for tourism thanks to its cultural and landmarks. One of the city's nicknames is Cidade Modelo (which means "Model City" in Portuguese).
