Manaus is a city in northwestern Brazil and capital of Amazonas State. it is also a port on Negro River (close to its confluence with Amazon River). Manaus marks the boudary between Lower Amazon River downstream to the east and Central Amazon River upstream for another 1000 miles to the west. Though located 1,000 miles from the sea, Manaus is accessible by oceangoing ships and one of the chief ports for developing Amazon River Basin. Among the exports of the city are Brazil nuts, rubber, timber, and other products of the rain forest.
Manaus was established by the Portuguese in 1669. It became one of the wealthiest cities in the world at the height of rubber boom of late 19th and early 20th centuries. Nowadays it retains a certain style though its former glory lingers just in some of the grand buildings dotted about the town, including a great cathedral on the hill and ornate Teatro Amazonas opera house (the latter was completed in 1896 and restored several times). Nearby is famous 'Wedding of the Waters', where dark Rio Negro and light Rio Solimoes join and form the Amazon, at first flowing without merging, side-by-side.
