Toronto is the most populous and the most visited city in Canada . It is situated in the southern part of the province Ontario, on the north-western shore of Lake Ontario. Toronto is the fifth largest city in North America .

Glances into history

The area of the today's city has been inhabited since antiquity by the Huron people. The city itself was founded in 1793. In 1998, the city and the adjacent towns merged into Metropolitan Toronto, which has more than 5 million inhabitants today.

About the city

Toronto is the center of Canadian economy and tourism in Canada . The city center spreads along a few well-known boulevards, the rest of the city are housing estates. In the eastern part of the city, there are e.g. Indian, Thai, Russian or Greek quarters. In the north-eastern part, there are the popular Chinese and Korean quarters. This part of the city is especially good for shopping.

CN Tower

The most popular place of interest in Toronto is the CN Tower , a majestic building and the highest building in North America and until recently the highest building in the world. The CN Tower is 553.33 m high and you can get to its top by a high-speed glass elevator. From there, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the whole Toronto.

Museums

Another popular tourist attraction is the Royal Ontario Museum , which presents dinosaur exhibitions, Egyptian artifacts and much more. The Ontario Science Centre is especially convenient for families with children. There is a unique technological exhibition, where you can touch and try out the exhibits. Perhaps the most popular exhibit in the whole museum is the device that will take a picture of you, on which you will look 50 years older. There is also a unique artificially-built rain forest or an artificial tornado. There is an IMAX cinema in the complex.

Other places of interest

Those who like sports, especially ice-hockey, should definitely visit the Hockey Hall of Fame . All famous players from all over the world are presented there and you can also see the original Stanley Cup there. In the part of the city Toronto called the Distillery District, you can visit the former factory of alcoholic drinks. Today, you can walk through the old houses and factories and visit one of the original craft shops. There are many cafes and pubs, where you can taste local beers. The local zoological garden is the third largest zoo in the world. Other attractions include the Black Creek Pioneer Village , the Gardiner museum dedicated to ceramics and the Wonderland , which is one of the most visited amusement parks in Canada . If you grow tired of visiting all the places of interest, you can rest at the beach of Lake Ontario. Swimming in it is only for the tough ones, but you can go skating, cycling or play beach volleyball there. Another place convenient for relaxing is the beautiful Queen's park in the center.
