Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, is the capital of West Bengal. It is a city steeped in culture, art and philosophy. The people of this city love intellectual debates on anything from cricket to avant-garde movies, and there are plays, art exhibitions, and film fests running all through the year. It is the nerve centre of trade (via land and water) in eastern India, and a significant contributor to the world of art, literature and cinema, both in and out of India.
Kolkata was the former capital of British India and has some spectacular colonial architecture. As the nerve-centre of the 19th & 20th century Bengal Renaissance, Kolkata has established local traditions in literature, art, theatre, cuisine and culture. Some of the tourist attractions include Victoria Memorial, the Indian Museum, the Marble Palace and the Gurusaday Museum.
