Travel to Quebec City

So our plans came three years ago. When we were just going to the province of Quebec, we decided to soon visit the capital of French Canada. But things are not quickly done, as the fairy tale affects. At first, they postponed their trip because of small children, poor French, then work, study, work, care … Well, finally, we “grew up” materially and spiritually to explore one of Canada’s oldest cities, besides one of the most unusual cities. But first things first.

Today we are still in Quebec City, but the rainy morning is not at all suitable for walking, so I decided to devote my free time to telling about this amazing town, while my emotions are still fresh and I do not need to extract them from the bins of memory. Continue reading

Calgary – Main Attractions

You can write about Canada as much as you like – this is the country of “maple leaves”, the birthplace of hockey, a huge number of lakes, waterfalls and endless forests, snowy expanses and so on. But I would like to share with you my impressions of my trip to the glorious city of Calgary.

HALIFAX, CANADA

Canadian Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city of the country’s Atlantic provinces. It is distinguished by a rich maritime history associated with its advantageous location and status as one of the best natural harbors in the world. True, according to US standards, the city is considered small: its population does not reach half a million. But there are two oldest churches in Canada, the largest mobile market in Canada, the oldest local government in Canada. And here is the largest tattoo festival in the world.

One of the most remarkable urban symbols is the snow-white Clock Tower. Its dial is marked with Roman numerals, and for reasons of aesthetics, the number 4 is depicted there not as IV, but as IIII. Continue reading
