Once the national capital, atmospheric Kolonia features the remains of a Spanish colonial fort, erected to defend the local government and military garrison. Almost complexly destroyed during World War II, the town underwent massive post-war reconstruction. Today, this lively center serves as home to government offices, public and private schools, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, hotels, and churches of various religious denominations. Kolonia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
