About Montreal

Often touted to be the Paris of Canada, the city of Montréal is unreal. And that mention isn't just for the sake of word play. It is the cultural capital of not just the state of Quebec but also a juggernaut of cultural explosion in Canada and its second largest city with a population of 1.9 million people. A popular and routinely featured city amongst North America's most liveliest destinations, Montréal has achieved a lot in order to deserve the reputation. It is the second largest French speaking city in the world, behind only Paris. Tourists from all over the world throng this cultural capital to witness and indulge in loving festivals, arts, a wide and good variety of food along with living life to the hilt. The city is the standard bearer of an entire linguistic cultural identity called Francophone Canada. Celebration is an integral part of Montréal with over 90 festivals and an exciting mix of artists from all sorts of backgrounds living and cooperating in harmony. Situated on an island in the St. Lawrence River at the historically highest navigable point, Montreal has been a strategic location since before the arrival of Europeans in Canada and is the country's most ethnically diverse centre. Another fun fact and unique feature about Montréal is that it is said to be been the only city in the world where the sun "rises in the south." Montreal has a bewildering variety of festivals, ranging from one-day ethnic fairs to huge international productions running two weeks or more. They are generally held in the summer and autumn, though increasingly they can be found throughout the year.The Festival International de Jazz de Montréal is the headline event, followed by parties dedicated to world cinema, comedy and gay pride. Old Montréal and the downtown area is where most of the touristy attraction is based. Old Montréal contains the vast majority of historical buildings in the city, most of them dating back to the 17th to 19th century, and many museums. At night several of the buildings are beautifully lit up. Le Plateau is the perfect place that combines scenic residential streets with hip shopping and dining. For the photogenic people always looking for those perfect clicks, the city offers breathtaking views. The locals love their summers and autumns but Montréal is a winter wonderland best explored in the realms of snow. A visit during winters ensures the added benefit of a plethora of benefits including skiing and ice skating. The lazier, more laid back folks can relax back around cozy fireplaces, in friendly pubs or at steaming sugar shacks.

Local Culture - Montréal's dynamic art and culture scene make it a true cultural metropolis. Even though a majority of the population is french, people from all sorts of backgrounds and nationalities are welcomed with warmth. Canada's cultural capital has an unmatched festive scene with the best of music fests to concerts as well as arts, literary and film fests organised throughout the year.

Dining - Definitely a top choice to be the cuisine capital of North America, Montréal is always brimming with new kitchens dedicated to gastronomic pleasures. The French connection is unmistakable and a welcoming one. Montréal is the Mecca of wonderful and wonderfully unique combinations of food to linger over and indulge in at any given hour of the day! Poutine is the local favourite and not to be missed.

Things to Keep in Mind - Montreal is often icy and cold in winter, be careful by dressing appropriately for the conditions and be mindful of ice or snow anytime you are driving or walking.
