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

Montreal Underground City

In the 60s of the 20th century, the chansonnier Gilles Vigno sang: “Mon pays c’est l’hiver” (My country’s name is winter). Quebec residents have always known how to use all the opportunities that the harsh climate of this area provides. He contributed to the development of excellent winter sports, and residents staged noisy carnivals. But, probably, snow and slush interfere with going to the theater and shopping. The inhabitants of Montreal solved this problem by going down underground. The construction of a shopping center on Ville-Marie Square was completed in the 60s of the XX century. Now many passages protected from the weather, 29 kilometers long, are built throughout the city center. There are metro and train stations, shops and department stores (about 1700), theaters, hotels, offices and apartments. In winter, you can enjoy all the charms of city life without even going outside. And in the summer, when the weather is pretty damp in Montreal, you can also take refuge in the underground City, the rooms of which are equipped with an air conditioning system. Continue reading
