Nestled on the banks of the Hooghly River, Kolkata is a booming metropolis, India's second largest city, and the country's cultural hub, known for being the birthplace of major artistic and literary movements.
Get out of town with these interesting Kolkata (Calcutta) side-trips: Hooghly (Shrine Basilica Bandel & Bandel), Chandannagar (Chandannagar Church & The Strand) and Howrah (Second Hooghly Bridge & Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden). There's lots more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, snap pictures at Howrah Bridge, learn more about the world around you at Indian Museum (Jadu Ghar), and make a trip to College Street (Boi Para).
