What turned Rio


Just six months ago, the city was brightly and richly hosting the summer Olympiad. Let's take a look at how the Olympic venues look like today. Sochi still causes pain to many people, but in this case it’s clear how a national holiday looks more like a war in consequence.

The legendary Maracan Stadium was built as a desperate attempt to rid the city of poverty and debt. Huge funds were spent from the budget. Here are the real ruins of human hopes.

Rio 2016 got into a flood of scandals even before the Olympiad itself began. Suffice it to recall the Zika virus, doping fights around Russian athletes and impeach the president on corruption charges.

The second largest city in Brazil today is doomed to pay multimillion-dollar debts to international lenders and nearly a million dollars to a local energy company.

Crap pools, trampled lawns, traces of vandalism are everywhere - today there are completely different decorations in the Olympic Park. Seats torn in the arena, the former cult recently.

The future of these rapidly degraded complexes is uncertain, but their safety is unlikely to be a priority among the long list of fresh problems of Rio.
