Curitiba is the capital of the Brazilian state of Paraná. According to the American magazine Reader's Digest, Curitiba is the best place to live in Brazil. One theory about the name "Curitiba" comes from the Tupi words kurí tyba, "many pine seeds" due to the large number of pinecones of Paraná pines in the region prior to its foundation. The other version, also from the Tupi language, comes from the combination of kurit (pine tree) and yba (large amount).
