Kolkata Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Kolkata Overview

Situated along the Hubli river, Kolkata, in addition to being the capital of West Bengal, is the most prominent financial center of East India. It is the oldest riverine port and the third most populated city of India. Since the advent of the East India Company, Kolkata remained the capital of the British Empire in India up to 1911. This period of British occupation contributed to the city’s overall culture and architecture, which is reflected in the city’s landmarks such as the Victoria Memorial Palace and the St. Paul’s Cathedral. The city is famous for its contribution to the arenas of literature, drama and music. Kolkata was the center of the Bengal Renaissance and was also a hotbed of the Indian nationalist movement. The city is also famous for its culture of association football. Kolkata has various historical forms of public transport, including the oldest underground mass transit system in the country, the tram system and the signature yellow cabs. The city is also famous for satisfying the sweet tooth with its sugary delicacies.
