Bogota, Colombia 🇨🇴

Bogotá is located in the centre of Colombia, on a high plateau in the Northern Andes Mountains. The city is 8661 feet above sea level (2640 meters) and has a subtropical highland climate which means it is cool during the day with average temperatures of 57°F during the day and 41°F at night.

Bogotá, originally called Bacatá by the Muiscas, was the center of their civilization before the Spanish conquest. At the time of the arrival of the Spanish in 1537 in the form of the Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada expedition, Santa Fé de Bogotá was founded. The city was made the capital of the vice-royalty of New Granada. In 1810-11 its citizens revolted against Spanish rule and set up a government of their own, but had to contend with Spanish military loyalists, who controlled the city until 1819, when Simón Bolívar captured the city. Santa Fé de Bogotá remained the capital of New Granada, which later became the Republic of Colombia. In August 2000, the capital’s name was officially changed back from “Santa Fé de Bogotá” to the more usual “Bogotá”.
