about college street

The entire amplitude of the College street is known as the heart of the Bengal Renaissance movement in Kolkata. It is a historic place that you can today call a famous hangout spot, a hub or just another street that holds back nostalgia of the heroic era of our country. A multitude of small and big book stalls lined together that are always bustling with book lovers as well as students of several reputed institutes, including the Calcutta University and the Calcutta Medical College, has been a part of this area since ages. The renowned Coffee house is also located here in the College street. It is a huge open cafe in the heart of the city that has always been the hub for the classic 'adda' of Bangla intellects, students and random people.

A stroll along the College street offers a spectacular insight into the socio-intellect issues that has shaped the very backbone of India, culminating the endeavour of the freedom movement. Walking through the area you can witness the varied philosophies and belief systems that concerns the educated youth population of the nation. The harmonious blend of the nineteenth century Kolkata and the modern times could be experienced in the College street.
