Caracas is the largest city in Venezuela, and it is also the capital. This capital city is reported have the highest per capita murder rate in the world (as a country, Venezuela also has the highest murder rate per capita). Murders, violent crimes and lesser crimes all go unsolved. That’s because most of this city’s population lives in poor slums.

In the middle of Caracas stands a tall building, one of the largest slums in the world and a monument to the life that most people live there.
