Known for its vibrant creative culture that is intensified by the sumptuous cuisine, delicious wine, world class craft beer and kicking coffee, Wellington is the capital city and the most populous urban town in New Zealand. Guarded by majestic mountains and snuggled between cosy hills, the city also has a flat waterfront downtown and a hooked shaped harbour to accentuate its beauty further. Other than the pleasant climate, beaches and the lively culture, the town resonates with the celebrations and festivities of several events, carnivals, festivals and fairs that are frequently held here.
Besides, the city largely gained its fame from the world famous film trilogy of The Lord of the Rings that was filmed here majorly. In addition to that, the gorgeous dainty houses perched here and there on the bushy hillside, built in typical Victorian timber architecture add to the charm of the beautiful town. However, the city is infamous for its frequent earthquakes and tremors, and also for the ever-blowing howling gales because of which it has also earned the nickname ‘Windy Wellington’. Bustling with several museums, galleries, art organizations, market places, restaurants and cafes, the vivid culture of (a rather small and compact) city also encourages street artists, performers, graffiti painters, buskers, and dancers etc. to adorn the streets and entertain the crowds.
