When we think of Canada, images immediately pop up in our head: a maple leaf on a red and white flag background and maple syrup, powerful figures of hockey players, endless forests and powerful antlers-wapiti. But this country is also famous for its interesting history, rich flora, majestic lakes, many places of worship - both man-made and granted by nature. When planning a trip, you need to calculate in advance the days of your stay in the country, since Canadian sights can captivate you so much that you literally lose track of time in studying them!

Polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba
If you move away from the architectural and historical sights and remember the stunning Canadian nature, then one of the first to come to mind is these amazing grace and power of creatures - polar bears.
The best time for an excursion to Churchill is October-November, when animals begin to migrate due to freezing water. Tourist tours are conducted in special buggy cars with mesh bodies, from the air by helicopters or by water from the ship. There are so many bears here that there is a special organization to catch predators that have wandered into the inhabited part of the city, after which they are carefully brought back to their familiar habitat.

The design of the building is made in the style of deconstructivism and is an installation of many crystals.

An entire civilization underground in the heart of one of the largest cities in Canada - something that can simultaneously amaze and confuse the unprepared tourist. A winding maze of endless boutiques, offices, hotels and inns, restaurants and cafeterias! There are places for leisure activities such as cinemas, concert venues and halls, sports areas, as well as entire residential complexes. For transportation, metro lines and buses are used, which are often an alternative to conventional ground transport during rush hour.
Niagara Falls, Ontario
There is no person who has never heard of this miracle of nature, located an hour's drive from Toronto on the border of Canada and America. The name of the waterfall is translated as “rumbling water”, which is not accidental, because every second tons of water fly under a huge pressure, falling from a 50-meter height with a deafening roar.
For many travelers, a trip to Niagara Falls is the top priority on their list of places to visit in the country. More than 30 million tourists come here every year to see firsthand this miracle of nature, surrounded by a dense "fog" of spray.
Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver
A privately owned national landmark built in the late 19th century. The original version of the bridge used hemp ropes and cedar planks, and was subsequently rebuilt from scratch as the previous version proved to be short-lived.
It is located 70 meters from the ground, so those who are afraid of heights should refrain from traveling here or stock up on a sedative - the views from it are fantastic, as are the emotions that you will experience walking from start to finish along this swinging structure.
