Best things to do in Bogotá

Museum
“Also within Candelaria, this has a staggering amount of mind-blowing gold from the Indian and pre-Spanish days. Really pretty stuff, even if you don’t like museums. Be sure and check out the “musica raft” while you’re there. That’s my favorite piece.”

Maisemallinen näköalapaikka
“This is a traditional Spanish church on top of a mountain. The view is incredible! The best in Bogota! If you’re feeling adventurous and go during the day with a group, you can hike up the mountain. Don’t do this if it’s night or you’re alone, though. If not, take the cable car – it’s easier. When you get to the top, buy a “canelazo” to drink. There are two restaurants on top as well, but I don’t think they are that good. You’re paying a lot for the view, and the food is only so-so. ”

“Nice small park surrounded by upscale bars and restuarants. The nightlife is more laid back, for something a little more wild Zona T is better.”

“This is about 2 blocks from the Botanical Garden, and is another large park for exploring, taking pictures, and enjoying the outdoors. Also important, it's free!”

Naapurusto
“This is the oldest, most historic part of Bogota. Lots of pretty, colorful buildings and winding streets to explore. It’s a neighborhood, so just go there with the idea of walking around, taking pictures, and exploring. If you find yourselves getting hungry while walking around, I STRONGLY recommend a super tiny little restaurant called La Puerta Falsa on Calle 11. This place has been around forever, and for good reason. In my experience, they have the best Colombian tamales and hot chocolate I’ve ever had (and I have a lot of data points). ”

History Museum
“A Must :-) It is the oldest in the country and one of the oldest in the continent, built in 1823. Its fortress architecture is built in stone and brick. The plant includes arches, domes and columns forming a sort of Greek cross over which 104 prison cells are distributed, with solid wall façade. The museum houses a collection of over 20,000 pieces including works of art and objects representing different national history periods. Permanent exhibitions present archeology and ethnography samples from Colombian artefacts dating 10,000 years BC, up to twentieth century indigenous and afro- Colombian art and culture.”

Aukio
“This is within La Candelaria, but is important enough to have its own point. This is the capital of Colombia, and the center of the country’s power. The square has a cool church, their parliament, and several other neat buildings. It’s also about 2 blocks from Puerta Falsa (hint, hint).”

Teatteri
“The Teatro de Cristóbal Colón (The Christopher Columbus Theatre), also known as the "Teatro Colón", is located in Bogotá, Colombia and it is the nation's National Theatre. It was built in the Neoclassical style by the Italian architect Pietro Cantini in 1885 and inaugurated on 27 October 1892 [1] on the occasion of the fourth centenary of the discovery of America with a performance of Verdi's Ernani. [2] The auditorium was constructed in the tradition horseshoe-shape and modelled on the layout of the Palais Garnier in Paris, but only about half the size.[1] The Colón Theatre was declared a National Monument on 11 August 1975, and underwent renovations for three years.”
