Maidan is often referred to as the 'lungs of the city' as it is a vast green area right in the centre of Calcutta. Several sports associations have their training centres here- and you can also do other things like enjoying street food, picnicking or horse rides for kids. It is common to see people playing football or cricket in Maidan and it surely is a refreshing breath in a city having more than 4 million people.

If you've had enough of the busy roads and concrete buildings, head to this open green space for some more natural scenery. It's also busy with shops, street vendors, hotels, and the like but a nice change of scenery nevertheless.
