Brazil's Olympic house was inaugurated in Rio De Janiero on Thursday.

The space, located in Rio's renovated port area, showcases the diversity of the host country for the 2016 Olympics games that begin Friday. 

Eduardo Paes, Rio De Janeiro's mayor, said the games were an opportunity to transform the city and unify the Brazilian people, despite political and economic obstacles. 

Visitors to the house which will stay open until September 18, will have an opportunity to see different parts of Brazilian culture, tourism, gastronomy and art as well as sports.
