Bogota, the capital of the Republic of Colombia, is a traditional city with an urban edge. 300-year old colonial buildings sit along side more modern restaurants, bars and museums. If you're visiting for history there are lots of cultural and traditional attractions, from the Plaza de Bolivar to the Cerro de Monserrate, it's easy to lose yourself in this city.
Catering for a multitude of tastes on any budget, from a stroll in the park with a picnic to a visit to an exotic restaurant on the top of a mountain and a date with the philharmonic orchestra, there really is something for everyone. But if you would prefer to explore with your stomach, why not take in some of the national delicacies such as Tamale, meat wrapped in plantain leaves with vegetables and steam cooked, then finished off with figs in arequipe for dessert.
A whole host of fascinating activities, sights, smells and tastes await you in Columbia's capital, as well as a array of fun festivals. Filled with outdoor space and lush scenery, there are lots of things to do in Bogota, and they're often free or cheaply priced. But if you'd rather take some time to experience a bit of culture, then lose yourself in one of the museums or discover something delicious in the many restaurants on offer.
Bogota is where you may taste the real Colombian culture best. For example, visit the famous Gold Museum, take a look at the National Museum of Colombia or opt for the special Catedral Primada de Colombia. If you want to see some nature in the city, the botanical gardens are a great option. And while you're in the area, let yourself be seduced by the beauty of the Monserrate, one of the highest mountain peaks in Bogota.
