Wellington

New Zealand's capital Wellington is not the country's largest city (that honour goes to Auckland), but it's a vibrant city with a thriving café scene and many great museums, galleries and music venues. "Windy Wellington" is set along the Cook Strait at the south-western tip of North Island.
