Bolpur-Santiniketan is one of the perfect weekend gateway destinations for the people who are eager to travel. It’s a great relief from metropolitan’s delirious pace and pollution. It is 145km away from Kolkata. The red soil of Birbhum, the green forest, the fresh air, the beautiful scenario of the bank of river Kopai, the remnant of Khoai created by rainfall during monsoon attract travelers by its own beauty.
The people of the district are very innocent and dear to everyone. Rabindranath Tagore’s Visva-Bharati Vishwa Vidyalaya is the main attraction of the place. It is an International University and a great center of Oriental education and culture.
