Kolkata City Tour
Kolkata City Tour
Kolkata City Tour- Kolkata previously known as Calcutta is the capital of the state of West Bengal. In a popular travel magazine that we read recently, Kolkata in India has been listed as one of the top 20 places to visit in the year 2020. Kolkata is popular as a travel destination among tourists but that is mostly around Durga Puja time. Kolkata is known for its diverse history, arts, theatre, and literature. There’s a lot that one can explore in Kolkata in one day or two days. Hence this city is a treasure trove of colonial architecture and the remnants of British and Anglo-India culture in India are still visible in Kolkata. Talking about culture, Kolkata has the title of being the “Cultural Capital of India” as well. In fact, any artist, worth their salt, considers themselves successful after performing before the discerning audience of Kolkata. Of late, there is a change in trend.
