Canada has always enjoyed great popularity as a tourist destination. World-famous natural beauties like Niagara Falls, imposing mountain landscape in the national parks Banff and Jasper, but also cities rich in tradition, such as Quebec and Montreal and the vibrant development of cities including Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver with an outstanding example of modern architecture, are worth visiting. Canada has something for every tourist - for those who enjoy walking around the city center, for nature and wildlife lovers or for those looking for adventure.
Canada is the second largest country in the world and occupies the northern part of North America. It stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific and has six time zones. Canada has two major cultures and two languages, French and English. It is one of the world's leading economic nations - enormous wealth of minerals and plant resources, fertile land for agriculture and forestry, together with the huge potential of hydroelectric power plants have contributed to Canada becoming one of the world's leading economic powers. Basically, all of the minerals essential to modern industry can be extracted in Canada. The capital of Canada is Ottawa, and the official currency is the Canadian dollar.
You can visit Canada at any time of the year, but most people come in the summer when the temperatures are pleasant and most of the activities take place outside. Since Canada covers a huge area, the weather conditions are not the same in all parts of the country during the year. In most areas, from March to May and from September to October, there are fewer tourists and often the weather is surprisingly pleasant. Fall is a great opportunity to visit Canada, because the forests then get a spectacular cloak of different colors.
In the capital, Toronto, you will find modern skyscrapers, one of the tallest television towers in the world and a large sports hall known as the Rogers Center. Toronto is a literary, artistic and musical city, and the cuisine is multicultural, as is its population. The city is also home to the world's largest underground shopping mall, PATH, which is connected to more than 30 kilometers of tunnels, promenades and shopping malls. According to the Guinness World Record, it has 4,000,000 square meters of retail space.
It’s hard to mention all the countless natural and architectural beauties this charming country has to offer, but whichever destination you choose, you certainly won’t make a mistake.
