Cities of the World TORONTO Canada
Toronto, that lays on the shore of Lake Ontario, is the biggest city in Canada and also the capital of the area called Great Lakes. The views from the C.N. Tower are spectacular. From the look-out tower we can look over the 4.4 million inhabitant metropolis.
Toronto is the citadel of modern architecture. Its main interest is the Downtown Walkway that is also called the P.A.T.H.. It has 11 kilometres walking tunnel and 1,200 shops. The St. Lawrence Market Hall, the University, the old Town Hall and the Casa Loma (Spanish for Hill House) – the most beautiful medieval castle forgery of North America - show us the history of the city. The shore, the harbor and the small islands with their sights and catering establishments have been developed into a tourist’s paradise.
No visitor should miss Niagara Falls, nor should they miss the well-know wine-growing area of the peninsula with such charming ancient small towns as Niagara on the Lake and St. Catharines.
