To see Kolkata at its best, check out our suggested top spots for capturing panoramic views of the city and its magnificent architecture.

Hooghly River

There’s no place offering a better view of the Howrah Bridge than the Hooghly river above which it stands. As one of the busiest bridges in the world, Howrah is a stunning sight that shouldn’t be missed. Take a ferry from the Howrah Junction Railway Station at Howrah across to Kolkata or check out the Floatel, a hotel situated on the river itself, for some fantastic views of the area.


1. Black Sky Bar

Bar, Pub Grub

There are more stunning views of the Kolkata skyline from the rooftop of the Black Sky Bar. Night time views of the adjacent commercial areas are particularly worth catching.
