The city of Kolkata is known for its diverse history. This is apparent in its culture, food, architecture, and people. Home to the world’s first ever non-euro Nobel Prize laureate, Rabindranath Tagore, the city’s love for literature is deep rooted in the region. Host to a number of events dedicated to the art, Kolkata is a great place to visit during the International Literary Festival and Kolkata Book Fair. Authors and intellectuals from all around the globe flock here during January every year to experience this feast for the mind.
