Bogota

Bogota - description of the city:

Bogota, the capital and the largest city of the country, combines futuristic architecture, colonial churches, a variety of museums - and yet it is a city of tramps, slums, drug dealers and perpetual traffic jams.

Entertainment, excursions and places of interest in Bogota.

Bogota's main square Plaza Bolivar is interesting for the statue of the first President of Colombia and the Catedral. Not far away is the Presidential Palace, where every day exactly at 17:00 the ceremony of guard change takes place. In addition, the capital is known for buildings of the National Capitol, the National Conservatory and the National Symphony Orchestra, the Columbia Academy, the National University of Colombia, as well as numerous museums: the Gold Museum, the National Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Arts and folk traditions, the Museum of Traditional Arts, the Museum of the City Development, the Art Museum of the colonial period, the Museum of Anthropology, the Museum of Science and Technology, the Maritime Museum, the Museum of Religious Art, the Museum of Numismatics and the home-museum of Simon Bolivar.
