Hello everyone,

Why should Danes know what are the 300 most populous cities in Brazil?

Today Denmark Brazil brings a list with the 300 most populous cities in Brazil.

  • To see how extensive and large Brazil is.
  • This information can be helpful to anyone looking for potential consumer markets in Brazil.
  • Pull off the idea that the consumer markets are only located in the very big cities like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil has a very extensive coast and according to the latest census ( and the list we are about to provide) nearly 55% of the Brazilian population lives in the cities part of the list. It is important to remember that in Brazil there are 5,5 thousand municipalities. That means that the 300 cities listed, represent 5 % of the total universe of Brazilian municipalites.
