The city is transforming itself once again. The same work ethic that forged Pittsburgh’s industrial might is fueling a new economy, one defined by health care, computer science, robotics research, biotechnology, finance, chemicals and coatings, and telecommunications. Pittsburgh is the largest inland port in the United States, situated at the confluence of three large rivers: the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio. Its skyline is one of the country’s most beautiful, and Pittsburgh has been ranked the most livable city in the United States by Forbes and The Economist. Prague: The city of Spires Centrally located in the heart of Europe, Prague is home to 1.2 million people and is the cultural and political capital of the Czech Republic. It is one of Europe’s most visited cities and is sometimes called the “city of a hundred spires” because of the church steeples and castles that dot its skyline. 3 The Czech Republic is a member state of the European Union and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). Prague’s economy is bolstered by a burgeoning high- tech community and its status as a manufacturing center for power generation, steel, and glass. Prague is full of rich history and has a growing economy that caters to international clients. São Paulo: A Titan of commerce Calling São Paulo immense is no understatement. The 24/7 city is home to 19 million people and is teeming with high-rise buildings. The cosmopolitan city is a melting pot of ethnic groups ranging from Italian to Japanese. The combined city and state of São Paulo is the economic engine of Brazil. The city is the center of the country’s financial and stock markets and the capital of Brazil’s automobile industry. There are few places in the world like São Paulo. It is home to some of the world’s finest restaurants and many of Brazil’s trendiest night spots.
