A Dynamic and Beautiful Capital City

A Dynamic and Beautiful Capital City

Nestled at the junction of three picturesque rivers, Ottawa is one of the world's most beautiful capital cities. The city borders the province of Quebec, creating a dynamic cultural milieu in which both French and English cultures are deeply rooted. The result is a truly cosmopolitan experience - a North American city with a distinctly European charm and flair. Ottawa presents visitors with a wide selection of sightseeing and outdoor leisure options.

The seat of Canada's federal government, Ottawa is a major centre for the visual and performing arts. Yet the city retains the accessibility, atmosphere and charm of a smaller centre - rich in wide open green spaces, parks and wilderness areas.

A four hour drive north-east of Toronto and two hours west of Montreal, Ottawa presents visitors with a wide selection of sightseeing and outdoor leisure options. In fact, with more than a dozen national museums and galleries - and a full calendar of festivals and activities - Canada's Capital Region has something for everyone.

A 'City of Festivals', Ottawa is also famous for its many festivals celebrating the seasons, music, recreation, traditions and cultures of Canada. Each year, dozens of festivals and carnivals, held throughout the region, draw thousands of tourists and local residents alike to Ottawa's streets, parks and special-events facilities.
