Churchill

In the area around Churchill, Manitobe, a lot of interesting things. This area is often called the capital of polar bears. They have been living here since the founding of the city in 1771. From October to early December, up to 1,200 polar bears gather at the place where the Churchill River flows into the Hudson Bay, waiting for the bay to freeze to resume hunting for seals. At this time, many tourists come here to see these magnificent animals. The population of the city is increasing by more than 10 times. There were times when some of the most curious animals came into the city!

Note that more than 300 days a year you can observe the northern lights. The easiest way to get to Churchill is by plane, but if you want to see from the land the plains and Lake Manitoba that the fur traders once crossed, take a 36-hour “tour” on the VIA train coming from Winnipeg.

Travel to the country of maple leaves. Parliament of Canada and Parliament Hill

I really wanted to see the Parliament of Canada. I wanted so much that I almost easily arranged for an organized tour, knowing that in this case an excursion into the bowels of the Parliament would be guaranteed to us.

And early in the morning, under a harsh sky and in a cold wind, I stood in a long line of people who wanted to inquire about what was inside. Due to the early hour, the turn was humane – we managed to freeze, but did not die completely. Tour tickets are booked in advance because the number of visitors is strictly regulated. The tour itself is free, they are held until 16.00. But, as a rule, in the afternoon there are no tickets for today. Continue reading
