Canada, the second largest country in the world by extension (only Russia surpasses it), is a perfect nation to live in due to the stability it offers socially and economically, since it is the tenth most powerful economy on the planet according to the IMF. In addition, its numerous natural landscapes make it a very attractive region for tourists, who not only visit Canada to see its great cities, but also come to ski, to climb mountains and to walk trails that offer spectacular views.
In this article I am going to focus on the urban to talk about the 10 cities most beautiful in Canada. I will not encourage you to create a route to visit all of them because you will have to travel many kilometers, but I recommend that you prepare a list to cross them off every time you spend a vacation in the country that has a maple leaf on its flag.
Ottawa is the capital, which means it is one of the most important cities in Canada, not to say the most important. It is located in the province of Ontario and mixes modern buildings with gardens and parks that allow you to escape the noise and pollution of the big city.
That it is not the capital does not mean that it is not the city that captures the most tourism in the entire country. It is the most populous of all and is also in the province of Ontario. Your main treasure? Without a doubt Niagara Falls, a natural spectacle that you cannot miss if you are in Toronto, which by the way is a very cosmopolitan city.
You have to go to the province of Quebec to come across the second most populous city in Canada. Montreal, which has the most important port in the country and boasts a very busy commercial life, we could say that it is the most european city What is there.
In British Columbia is Vancouver, the third largest city in Canada. his financial center he never rests and the leisure plans don't end when the night comes. Also, there is always time to raise your head to contemplate the beauty of the mountains that surround this city full of skyscrapers.
Quebec City, which is in the province of Quebec, is divided into two parts: the upper and the lower. The first of them is the one that I recommend you visit, and I assure you that you will not be disappointed. It represents the French colonization of Canada and has an old town with numerous buildings from European colonial architecture.
It only has 250,000 inhabitants, which is little compared to the cities I mentioned earlier. However, Saskatoon deserves to be on this list of Canada's most beautiful cities. Why? Perhaps due to the attractiveness of the seven bridges that cross the South Saskatchewan River, which is why it is known as the «City of Bridges«. The name of this city, by the way, is due to a berry very similar to blueberries that grows in those parts.
The city of Halifax in Nova Scotia should not be confused with the Halifax of West Yorkshire in England. In Canadian Halifax it is very easy to have a good time, perhaps because of being so close to the sea and being the city with the most bars and clubs per capita in the entire country. That means you can enjoy craft beers, live music, terraces where you can have a drink outdoors ...
The capital of British Columbia, where Vancouver is also located, is another one that we cannot leave out of this list. Its strong point is the numerous parks it houses, which enables many outdoor activities to take place. That is why it is ideal to go with children, which does not mean that you cannot spend your time on other things, such as contemplating the British colonial architecture of the area, which has its largest mansion in the Craigdarroch Castle. exponent.
It is in the province of Columbia and has less than 200,000 inhabitants. Kelowna is a growing city whose name comes from the native language of the Okanagan Valley, in which Kelowna means «Grizzly bear«. It has nothing to do with big cities because it is surrounded by nature, allowing you to explore it without stress and by bike.
In this case, a distinction must also be made between the Statford of the province of Ontario, in Canada, and the Statford neighborhood in Newham, east of London. It is a small city, with just 40,000 inhabitants, with a swan as a symbol. It was originally a railroad crossing and grew rapidly thanks to the furniture industry, although it must be recognized that the Stratford Festival, which was first held in 1953 and is dedicated to the theater, has been able to attract many tourists.
