Europe on Hooghly River

Did you know, more than 300 years ago, the river Hooghly, cutting across the plains of Bengal, was of truly global significance, enduring for centuries. Because of the rich textiles like muslin and silk, it attracted merchants, missionaries, mercenaries, statesmen, labourers and others from Europe and beyond, making it a mini 'Europe on the Hooghly'! Join us as we take a cruise down the river from Murshidabad to Kolkata and trace the long lost glory of this once thriving and bustling river!
