Kolkata, often called the capital of Eastern India, is also the second largest city in the country. The city was also the British capital when they ruled India and is today the art and commerce hub of eastern India. It boasts of beautiful architecture like the Victoria Memorial and the Fort William. While newer parts of the city are springing up with time, older areas like the Park Street and Eden Gardens retain a charm of their own.
