Kolkata – The City That Fills You With Sweets, Stories and Nostalgia

Kolkata – The City That Fills You With Sweets, Stories and Nostalgia

Set up on the banks of River Hooghly, the old British capital – Calcutta is an embodiment of historical and cultural elements in India. Also known as the ‘City of Joy’ and now renamed as Kolkata, the city acts as a major connecting centre for the scenic north-eastern parts of India with the rest of the country and the world. The well-preserved past and hospitability of the city have long been calling out to travellers from far and beyond. Adding to that, the torpid city life experience with the variety of street foods, the local sweet and dessert temptations and the sepia-toned wistfulness, are sure to touch your heart once you visit the capital of West Bengal.

Kolkata is just not the city of joy, it is a city of stories – stories of the yearly Durga Pujo celebrations, of the afternoon siestas, of the webbed lanes and by-lanes, of the veteran trams which moves at its own pace ignoring the hustle associated with city life, and more.

Besides evoking nostalgia, the city is also a den for sports lovers with football clubs and carrom-gatherings at every nook and corner. With a happening night-life around Park Street and the new townships around Rajarhat, the city has been trying to step up to the wordly and metropolitan charms in the past decade or so. Kolkata has been seeing an influx of travellers – both domestic and international, in the recent times too, owing to the increased development, improved infrastructure and more number of meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) organised by the corporates. Increased connectivity by flight, road and rail has also been substantial for the hospitality sector growth in the city, as Kolkata looks forward to economic progression.
