Bogotá

A cosmopolitan hub built of colonial architecture, Colombia's capital and economic center sits high on a plateau in the middle of the country, surrounded by the Andes. Having undergone many changes in the 20th century, today's Bogota, with its over eight million residents, is a sharp contrast of poverty and affluence, as gritty in some neighborhoods as it is chic and ritzy in others. The city's history, culture and sights converge at its colorful cobblestone downtown, La Candelaria, where locals and tourists alike come to enjoy Bogota by day and by night.
