Rooted in tradition, Pune is the cultural heart of Indian state of Maharashtra. This rapidly growing and bustling metropolis enjoys the nicknames ’Queen of Deccan’, ‘Oxford of the East’, ‘Detroit of India’. Risen as the capital of Peshwas, today Pune features prominently on the industrial, defense and educational map of the country.
Also known as the city of two-wheelers and automobile hub, it has the highest density of motorcycle riders in India. Home to industry giants like Tata Motors and Bajaj Auto, it is a large manufacturing center for Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen.
Throughout the year, Pune is buzzing with vibrant Hindu festivals and international events. Proud of their history and culture, Puneites are not show-offs but hard workers. In free time they immensely enjoy dining-out and Bollywood movies.
If you plan to spend a night out in the city, remember to make reservations, or simply get home delivery. Mingling with hues of Indian culture, e-commerce and tech ventures make the life of expatriates easy and enjoyable. Yet there is something impalpable about this city that binds you to it.
