Lucknow is capital of Uttar Pradesh and one with an old city legacy and royal past. Lucknow royal family has been responsible for their contributions in art, heritage, music and cuisine.
 
Lucknow today is a bustling city but the old city character still packs a punch. There are number of monuments (Bara Imambara, Chhota Imambara and Rumi Darwaza). that are worth visiting and the lucknow cuisine still is one that differentiates itself completely. Non-vegetarian fare is nothing short of an experience (especially the street food in Old City of Aminabad).
 
The British-built architectural sights in Lucknow include the Vidhan Sabha (State Legislative Assembly), the Clock Tower and the Charbagh Railway Station, with its distinctive domes, arches and pillars. St Joseph's Cathedral in Lucknow is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lucknow.
 
Lucknow has several well-kept parks that attract the citizenry in large numbers on evenings, holidays and weekends. The sprawling National Botanical Garden at Sikandarbagh on the banks of Gomti river is worth visiting. The city also has a Reserve Forest, Kukrail Reserve Forest (a picnic spot and Gharial rehabilitation centre).
 
Lucknow is renowned for its Chikankari work and is best visited for shopping for Lucknowi dress materials. 
 
Lucknow of today is a mix of modern and the ancient. There are 4*/5* hotels and there are heritage style hotels alongwith wide ranging experiences.
 
Lucknow can be a laidback getaway for those who like a bit of heritage monuments, shopping and ethnic cuisine.
