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.
Family-friendly places like Eco Tourism Park and Science City will thrill your kids. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Park Street and Birla Industrial & Technological Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Shrine Basilica Bandel in Hooghly (about 1h 40 min away). The adventure continues: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, stroll the grounds of South Park Street Cemetery, contemplate the waterfront views at Rabindra Sarovar, and see the sky in a new way at Birla Planetarium.
