Image result for Bogota

The capital of Columbia, Bogota, is a bustling city. There are a plethora of touristy things to do. It is also pretty hip and cool. Spending a week in Bogota, I just fell in love with the city. The excellent culinary scene and the friendly locals are going to add to the intoxicating aura which is exuded by the city. Here, listed a few things that you can check out when you are in the city

Walk Through La Candelaria

This is the first thing that I did after I set foot in the city. La Candelaria is the historic center which has many tourist attractions. The bohemian and colorful streets will re-kindle your spirits. Take an evening walk along cobbled streets along the university halls and colonial buildings. The street arts are just exceptional. I came across many cafes, restaurants, and bars serving delectable food. You can also get to see artists and musicians performing around this area.

The Gold Museum

Museo Del Oro, the most well-known museum of the city has over 30,000 gold pieces. The three-floor museum is full of artifacts that have been collected from the pre-Hispanic cultures of Colombia. However, what surprised me was that each of these pieces focused on different themes. I got to learn how these pieces had been discovered and mined and then worked on to make masks, jewelry, armor, or bowls.

Climb Monserrate

Climb uphill to this excellent viewpoint to get a view of the entire city. The white church at the top but the seeing the beautiful view of the city surpassed everything. There are some restaurants at the top where you can grab a drink and snack. Superstitions have to say that couples who go together are never going to get married. However, these are nothing but superstitions.
