Ottawa: proud and diverse capital

Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa is the capital of Canada, a dynamic city of over a million people. Located on the Quebec border in east of southern Ontario, this is a place where you will hear both English and French spoken on the streets. Sitting on the Ottawa River, it has Parliament Hill at its center, with great Victorian architecture and museums such as the National Gallery of Canada, with well-known collections of native and other Canadian art. The Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) park-lined is filled with summer boats and ice-skaters during winter time.
