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.

And it doesn't end there: walk around Eco Tourism Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kalighat Kali Temple, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Kolkata Zoo & Zoological Garden, and engage your brain at Birla Industrial & Technological Museum.
