    Is the best University of the country. A campus where you can enjoy both a studio space, and different expressions of art, culture and thought. The OWL-shaped campus is an expression of impressive architecture. A place to visit for any foreigner visiting Colombia.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
