Colombo

Colombo is the largest city in Sri Lanka and is situated on the west coast of the island. The city is an important financial and commercial centre and has a large port. Colombo is often referred to as the capital of Sri Lanka although the adjacent, sattelite city of Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte is the official capital. A busy cosmopolitan and vibrant city, Colombo is a mix of modern, colonial and ruins. The city celebrates many cultural and religious Sinhala and Hindu festivals and is renown for its sporting events such as cricket. Colombo has many fine museums, and a thriving performing arts scene.
