National Gallery of Canada

One of Ottawa’s most famous museums is the National Gallery of Canada. Its building made of glass and granite with octagonal towers was designed by the famous architect Moshe Safdi and was built in 1988. True, many during an external examination are not only struck by the building itself, but by what it faces. And this is neither more nor less than an almost ten-meter metal spider, which is quite an eerie look.

The gallery was created in 1880 by the Governor of Canada and in the first years occupied one building with the Supreme Court. Subsequently, the gallery moved to the Victoria Memorial Museum (now the Canadian Museum of Nature). In 1985, a new museum of modern photography was attached to the gallery. And in 2000, the new gallery building was included by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada in the 500 best buildings in the country built over the past millennium. Continue reading

Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls is located 8.5 km northeast of the city of Quebec in the province of Quebec (Canada). It is formed by the Montmorency River (101 km long), which flows into the St. Lawrence River downstream of Quebec. It is near the mouth that a powerful stream of water flows down. Its height is 84 meters and its width is 46 meters. This natural formation is the highest in the province. At its base is a small lake with a depth of 17 meters.

History reference
The name was given to the waterfall in 1613 by the French navigator and cartographer Samuel de Champlain (1574-1635). He named the majestic waters in honor of the prominent French commander of the Duke Henry II de Montmorency. The name has taken root and has survived to this day. Continue reading

Old Quebec

The old city is not very large, and there should be enough day for a surface inspection. Against the background of European cities, it would not be very noticeable, but for North America the square kilometer of a rather integral ensemble of the 18th and 19th centuries is a completely unique thing. Cities of this time are also in the USA (for example, Newport), but the architecture there is completely different. Quebec, despite the fact that most of the center was built or rebuilt under the British, retains clear features of French influence, and the presence of the fortress wall and the St. Lawrence River – the second most powerful North American watercourse – makes it unique.
