Known as the “Pink City”, this city represents one of the strongest cultural parts of the country. With its details and beauty in an idyllic setting, this place is truly perfect for a romantic honeymoon. Its historical and artistic legacy shed light on the stories from the Arabian Nights. A mixture of pompous palaces of the Maharajas (City Palace, Samode, Hawa Mahal) and strongly medieval buildings (Fort Bernstein) characterize the cityscape.
