New Delhi is the capitol of India and the starting point for most of the trips through the northern part of the country. The metropolitan city has over 16 million inhabitants and is still growing rapidly. Here you will find the political and economic centre of northern India. In addition, the city has more than a thousand historic buildings, and some of them are worth a visit.
New Delhi was founded by the British in the early twentieth century, to serve as the capital of British India. Large parts of the city therefore have a British appearance, such as many parks and the colonial city centre of the city of Connaught Place. The most interesting places to visit are the city districts of New Delhi and Old Delhi.
