Prinsep Ghat

Prinsep Ghat with a good spectacular view is names after the famous James Princep. The place was built when the city and the whole country was under the Raj of the British. It is among the serene and quaint places in Kolkata where locals and tourists go for a getaway from city's hustle-bustle. This place is also considered by the locals for morning and evening walks by the banks of the river Ganga with not really a great view but also clean and oxygen free of pollution, amidst the lush greenery all around. For those who want to pay some quality time by the Hoogly without spending much, this is actually the spot to head to. An extra activity here's boat rides that are slow and serene in the waters of the Ganga.
This video is about the place where we can spend evening in Kolkata while enjoying the breeze from the river.

Along the banks of river Hooghly there are many well decorated ghats. One of the most famous among them is the James Princep Ghat. It is one of the most beautiful and peaceful place in kolkata to enjoy the sunset. You can also take a ferry ride in the river and enjoy the serenity of the place. Other than princep ghat, there are millenium park, bagbazar ghat etc which are equally beautiful.
