Canada is so large that it is the second largest country in the world after Russia. In our imagination, in addition to its gigantic size, it is often synonymous with snow, polar cold and maple syrup.
This country abounds in natural riches and breathtaking landscapes. It is located in the north of the United States. Depending on the region, the climate can be temperate or reach temperatures as low as -45 degrees in winter, with very heavy snowfalls.
For a few hundred years it was prey to the colonizers, who fought among themselves to have a monopoly of the country. After the Seven Years’ War and the union of three colonies, the Dominion of Canada was born on July 1, 1867.
The official languages of the country are English and French, the latter having a very pronounced and recognizable accent!
The country is divided into several provinces, each with its own surprises to discover. If you are a wilderness enthusiast, then Manitoba is the perfect place to see polar bears. New Brunswick where you can discover the highest tides in the world. And of course, don’t forget the inevitable Niagara Falls!
Then, Montreal opens its doors to you. Montrealers love to party, at nightfall, the streets fill up and the city comes alive. Rich in crossbreeding due to its eventful history, it offers you a multitude of festivities. Whether it’s to visit museums, attend festivals or shows, everything is done to ensure that the traveller keeps an imperishable memory of his or her stay.
If you’re a gourmet, that’s not the point! Gastronomy holds a very important place, which has earned it an international reputation. Throughout the city you will find many small restaurants ready to introduce you to the culinary specialties of the country!
