Bogotá, Colombia's capital, is a high-altitude city that's set more than 2500m above sea level amidst towering mountains. Founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1538, Bogotá has a long and colourful history as the capital of Spain's New Granada colony and of Colombia following its independence. In addition to being a high-altitude city, Bogotá is also a high-octane city: it's Colombia's largest city, the country's educational centre and now, with improved safety measures, it is becoming one of Latin America's premier cities.

Bogotá is a fascinating mixture of colonial and ultra-modern architecture. The city is one of the southern hemisphere’s principal centres for the arts, with architects and artists leaving their marks throughout the city. Many travellers on holidays to Bogotá spend some time at historic La Candelaria, a district full of cafés, churches and museums. The annual Carnaval de Bogotá, held each Ausgust to celebrate Bogotá’s founding, is a festival featuring parades, regional music, dance and foods - a great opportunity to experience local colour and culture. Expoartesanias provides the opportunity to purchase traditional and modern Indian and Afro-Colombian fiber, fabric, wood, silver, gold, ceramic and stone handicrafts. And the bullfights held at the Plaza de Toros are a cultural experience of another type.
