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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rabindra Sarovar and Salt Lake Stadium. Step out of Kolkata (Calcutta) with an excursion to Second Hooghly Bridge in Howrah--about 52 minutes away. There's lots more to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, take in the views from Howrah Bridge, browse the collection at National Library, and take in the spiritual surroundings of ISKCON Kolkata, Sri Sri Radha Govind Temple.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Kolkata (Calcutta) trip itinerary builder .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 31°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
