Nestled high in the Andes, Bogotá the capital of Colombia is a city of contrasts. It's a city of high-rise buildings standing next to colonial churches; a city of universities, theatres and shantytowns. It is a mixture of influences, Spanish and English and Indian; a city of great wealth and material well being. Being one of the most important metropolises in Latin-America, Bogota offers a great cultural, educational, recreational and commercial display.
Bogotá is a city of contrasts, and as such it offers a unique experience to its visitors. Prepare to find a hectic balance between the new and the old; the peaceful and the frantic. Encounter century-old plazas and churches shadowed by towering skyscrapers. Find peaceful tree lined bicycle routes cut through by wild-traffic avenues. Bogota is a city with many layers. From internationally recognized universities to regional offices for multinational companies, Bogota is Colombia's capital for official business dealings. It is a city that caters to a population that has been exposed to European and North American influences, which ensures that anything from traditional dishes (Ajiaco) to sushi or fast food restaurants can be found. It's one of the most modern and metropolitan cities of South, Central America and the world.
Bogota is divided by 4 sections: The South which is mainly the poorer section of the city; El Centro, which translates "Centre", is the city's original Downtown and hosts most of its traditional heritage locations, city and public offices, and financial headquarters. El Occidente, which is home to Bogota's major sporting venues and outdoor parks, as well as residence areas for main middle and some upper class living; and The North which is where most modern development has taken place, and combines many upscale living spaces with affluent shopping centres, boutiques, cafes, nightclubs, and many new business neighbourhoods offering headquarters to many multinational corporations.
