Canada has always enjoyed a huge popularity as a tourist destination. The world famous natural beauty (Niagara Falls, the imposing mountain landscape in Banff National Parks and Jasper (Jasper), etc.), but also cities with a tradition such as Quebec and Montreal and the vibrant development of cities including Toronto , Calgary (Calgary), Edmonton and Vancouver (Vancouver) with an exceptional example of modern architecture, are worth traveling.

Canada is the second largest country in the world and occupies the northern part of North America. It extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and has six time zones. Canada has two great cultures and two languages, French and English. Canada belongs to the leading economic nations of the world.

Practically all minerals of essential importance for the modern industry can be distinguished in Canada. The capital of Canada is Ottawa and the official currency is the Canadian dollar.
When to travel to Canada?
You can visit Canada at any time of the year, but most people come flying when the temperatures are pleasant and most of the activities take place outside. However, what constitutes “summer” varies depending on the region. In southern Canada, this generally refers to the period from the end of May to the beginning of September.
In the northern region, however, the year begins only in mid-June, and ends, often suddenly, with the first snow in early or mid-September.
In most areas, from March to May and from September to October, there are fewer tourists, and it is often time surprisingly pleasant. Autumn is a great opportunity to visit Canada, because the forests then receive a spectacular cloak of different colors. Canadian winters are long, cold and dark. Most of the attractions are closed, and your research is quite limited to ski resorts and cities. Quebec City , Toronto and Winnipeg are among the cities hosting large winter carnivals.

Even in winter, when the flow is partially reduced and the edges are fairly frozen, water extravagance is not reduced. Very rarely, the waterfall stops completely.

Inuvik – Arctic Circle settlement on the Mackenzie Delta. It was built between 1955 and 1961 during exploration of oil and gas, and replaced Aklavik, which was poorly located and prone to flooding. Today, Inuvik is a trading, administrative and supply center for the Western Arctic. There is an airport, several schools and a hospital. As the country is permanently frozen, any form of construction presents significant technical problems. All communal lines of supply must be placed above the ground and houses built on the pillars to prevent the melting of eternal ice, which would result in soil sinking.
