Bogota is located on the western slope of the Cordillera, in a ditch much above the sea level. The city was initially founded on the bank of the Rio San Francisco River. Nowadays this river simply doesn’t exist. The climate in this country is moderate and in summer the temperature doesn’t raise above fifteen degrees by Celsius. In winter the temperature can fall down up to minus eleven degrees by Celsius. We should also mention that this city suffers from earthquakes very often due to its geographic location.
Sometimes it freezes in Bogota, but it snows rarely. You can see many trees and bushes on the territory of the city. Here also live pumas, jaguars, monkeys, porcupines, armadillo and other animals.
Bogota also has some architectural and historical sights. Among them is Caterdal Cathedral that was built in 1572-1610, and renovated in 1998. This cathedral is located on Plaza Bolivar. Also don’t forget to visit the President Palace as here you can see a picturesque ceremony of changing the guard.
