Chittagong - description of the city:

Chittagong is situated in the east party of Bangladesh, at the mouth of the Hooghly Carnap river. It is a significant production center and an international port of the country. Moreover, this city is the most popular tourist destination of Bangladesh, where all country guests should certainly get. The reason for this is a good location: the city lies between the beautiful mountain area and the beautiful waters of the sea. The neighborhood of Chittаgong can boast not only a good sea shore with an abundance of shallows and islets, but also a large number of ancient monasteries of different cultures, as well as the distinctive hill tribes, who inhabit the famous Chittаgong hills. The city can boast many architectural and historical monuments from different areas and cultures.

Chittаgong has been based on the beginning of the new century and during all its history it experienced many dramatic events. So, it is not surprising that the feature of the city is a mixture of various architectural styles and cultures. The main decoration of the old district of Chittаgong considered the old district of Sadarghat, which lies along the northern banks of the Karnapuli river. It has been inhabited since ancient times by rich merchants, and with the arrival of the Portuguese in its territory was built Paterghatta enclave with rich mansions and villas. By the way, Sadarghat is one of the few areas in Bangladesh, where Christianity is still preserved.  For now the main attractions of this area are: Qadam Mubarak Mosque, Chandanpura and Shahi Jama-e-Masjid Mosque; shrine of Dargah Shah-Amanat; majestic complex of the courthouse; bada Shah Mausoleum; and many old houses and condominiums of different sizes and styles. Another interesting object is a sanctuary of Bayezd-Bistami, which attracts a large number of pilgrims. Particularly this place is notable for its pond turtles, which are considered as a direct descendant of evil spirits, placed in the body of these reptiles.

In Chittаgong, as in other cities of Bangladesh, are no familiar to Europeans nightclubs, discos, and bars. However, there is a great place for a picnic and outdoor recreation. This place is a Foy pond, which is disposed in the beautiful green countryside. There is arranged a small amusement park «Lake Foy», and is situated near the zoo.
