Pune Experience: It is second largest city in the state and is considered the state's cultural capital.Attitudes in Pune are liberal. The city used to be very traditional and conservative, but times have changed. The city is not the conservative small-town of old, but now is a much more open-minded developed city with state of art infrastructure and a major IT hub.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum- The museum is housed in a Rajasthani style building situated close to the hustle and bustle of the busy Bajirao Road. It holds a collection of the most fascinating Indian arts and crafts that you would have ever seen. Mastani Mahal which was brought and erected as it was from its original form is a masterpiece amongst itís other exhibits. National War Museum -Shaniwar Wada - This palace was built by the successors of Shivaji, the Peshwas in 1736.Bhimshankar Wildlife SanctuarySinhagad and Khadakwasala - This is a fort nearby which is a beautiful place to see:Aga Khan Palace;Parvati Hill temples -
Activities & things to do: Pune is undoubtedly a great place to eat. Fergusson College Road is full of budget eateries serving delicous hot food at nominal charges. For a range of multi-cuisine restaurants, visit ABC Farms, Koregaon Park, which houses the city's best restaurants. Almost all restaurants open and close at similar hours. 10 in the morning to 11 at night is the usual. Of course, restaurant bars stay open till at least midnight. Misals are a Pune favourite, if you can stomach the spice in them. They are a tasty meal and a visit to Bedekar Misal or Shree Uphar Gruha is a must. They are located in the Peth areas and are famous. Shree Uphar Gruha is located at Tulsi Baug. Its a small joint but dishes out tasty Misal. GET to M.G road and everything is mouth watering! the Sizzler, Dorabjee , blue NILE are my favourite
