In a land where the Nawabs resided and home to prized Ghazals,  Lucknow is brimming with rich splendor, Adab and Tehzeeb.  With a touch of Mughal era in almost everything, Lucknow maintains it's old city charm along with the modern progress.

The drooling Mughal-e and Awadhi cuisines, the Urdu shayaris and the music will linger for too long. Its a foodie's paradise  and to name some are kebab-paranthe, biriyani, nihaari kulcha. People who want to explore their sweet tooth - please do try makkhan malai and the kulfi falooda from the Chowk Chauraha. 
Don't forget to try the variety of Paan after your stomach is full and when your feet ache of the sightseeings.

Savor some chaats - hit the Royal Cafe and gorge on the famous Basket Chaat while you enjoy the evening breeze rendered by the Gomti.

Helmets are not mandatory but the Auto rides are bound to give you a flavor of the city.  The Taanga rides might even transport you to back in time and make you realise how grand this city had been then.

To the courteous richness, unbelievable cultural and religious tolerances and to the booming Chikankari art - Lucknow you are poetic!!
