About the city

Ottawa is the capital of Canada, and the fourth largest city in the country. Ottawa is situated on the south bank of the Ottawa River, and contains the mouths of the Rideau River and Rideau Canal. The older part of the city, including what remains of Bytown, is known as Lower Town, and occupies an area between the canal and the rivers. A must see for all visitors to Ottawa is the Parliament building. It is undoubtedly among the most beautiful parliament buildings in the world. Now part of a hotel, Chateau Laurier retains much of its grandeur. Inside this famous Ottawa landmark you'll find luxurious settings and ornate décor. Constructed in the 19th century, the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica is among the surviving churches of Ottawa. Take a tour in the Supreme Court of Canada building, enjoy its impressive marble Grand Entrance Hall and its exquisite Art Deco architecture. A UNESCO world heritage site, the Rideau Canal offers excellent views of the city. In winter time, it's transformed into a massive skating rink. There are also two notable museums, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Canada's capital city could hardly be lovelier. Dynamic, gregarious, bilingual, the city has festivals, parks, theatres, museums, restaurants, shops and enough sights to fulfil the expectations of even the most demanding visitor.
