Kolkata previously known as Calcutta is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. Located on the east bank of the Hooghly River and being the biggest in eastern India, it is the principal commercial, cultural, and educational centre, while the Kolkata Port  is India's oldest port and sole major inland river port. Kolkata also referred to as the "City of Joy" is regarded as the "cultural capital" of India and as of 2019, 6 Nobel Laureates had connections with the city either by birth or work place. 

In the 17th century, three villages(Gobindapur, Kolikata & Sutanuti) that predated Calcutta were ruled by the Nawab of Bengal under Mughal sultanate. The Nawab granted the East India Company a trading licence in 1690, the area was developed by the Company into an fortified trading post. Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah occupied Calcutta in 1756, and then East India Company retook it the following year. In 1793 the East India company got strong enough and assumed full sovereignty of the region. Under East India Company rule and later the British Raj, Calcutta was the capital of entire British ruled Indian Region till 1911, when  with growing nationalism in Bengal, led to a shift of the capital to New Delhi.

Calcutta was the centre for the Indian independence movement. Indian National Association was the first such nationalist organisation founded in Calcutta by Surendranath Banerjee and Anandamohan Bose. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, was based out of this city, is considered as the real reason for the British left India. Netaji with his Azad Hind Sena with Japanese assistance launched war against the British along the North Eastern side and gained major areas after defeating them. 

After independence in 1947, Kolkata, which was once the centre of modern Indian education, science, culture, and politics, suffered several decades of economic stagnation and slowly lost its importance in national context. 

Kolkata hosts several cultural institutions of national importance. Some are the Academy of Fine Arts, the Victoria Memorial, the Asiatic Society, the Indian Museum and the National Library of India. Among professional scientific institutions, Kolkata hosts the Agri Horticultural Society of India, the Geological Survey of India, the Botanical Survey of India, the Calcutta Mathematical Society, the Indian Science Congress Association, the Zoological Survey of India, the Institution of Engineers, the Anthropological Survey of India and the Indian Public Health Association.

Though home to Sourav Ganguly one of the most successful captain in Indian cricket & major cricketing venue and IPL franchises, Kolkata differs from other Indian cities by focusing on association football and other sports. 

Kolkata has many attractions within short driving distance like Sundarban National Park, Digha & several other popular sea beaches,  as well as some glorious mountain destinations just within overnight travelling distance.
