Salvador, a city on the northeast coast of Brazil, is also known as Brazil's capital of happiness due to its easygoing population and countless popular outdoor parties. The first colonial capital of Brazil, the city is one of the oldest in the country and in the New World; for a long time, it was also known as Bahia (or Salvador da Bahia). The city is notable for its cuisine, music and architecture. Over 80% of the population is of Black African origin, and it is the center of Afro-Brazilian culture. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985.
