This luxurious hotel in Quebec was built in 1893 and the designer was inspired by the French castles and cathedrals of Renaissance times. Now it defines the looks of the whole Quebec, having thick foliage and several towers.

Visiting and walking the floors, you will feel closer to all the celebrated guests that Chateau Frontenac has received in the many years of its existence;

Since the day it was finally finished in 1976, the CN Tower is a landmark on the Toronto skyline and the biggest tourist destination in the city. With a height of 553 meters  (which is about 1814 feet), it is the  largest tower in Canada.

Constructed by the 🚂 Canadian National Railway, it was later sold to the Canada Lands Company.

Today, it is used as a communication tower that broadcasts the CBC and Rogers Communications throughout Canada.

If you are interested in visiting the tower, make sure you make a reservation and enjoy dinner at the luxurious restaurant, located high on the Tower – ‘360’. 

It is situated at a height of 351 meters (1152ft) and revolves slowly around the tower, offering its guests a magnificent view of Toronto and suburbs.

The true architectural wonder Plus 15 system is a series of walkways that connect almost all the buildings at the Calgary’s metropolitan center.

It consists of 57 suspended walkways that provide pedestrians a protected indoor walkway, which provides relief from extreme 🥶 winter weather conditions common for this part of Canada in the winter.

The average length of the Plus 15 system is about 16 kilometers (10 miles). The system is now an integral part of a city culture and it even inspires local artists.




The historic military complex – the Halifax Citadel is a reminder of city’s great naval past. Built in 1856, this classical fortification was aimed at defending the city from any assaults from land and sea.

Now the fort is open to visitors as a National Historic Site, and here they can find remnants from its military past, such as; trenches and ramparts, shooting ranges and military towers.

When planning a visit to Halifax Citadel, try to attend when the Regimental Association re-enacts some of the historical activities of the Citadel. 

Activities including military music concerts and much more!
