Is it Paris in New York or vice versa? In any case, Montréal is an artist city, both bohemian and very uplifting. Montréal, Canada’s Cultural Capital, is located in the southwest of the Province of Québec and is only a 5 to 6 hour flight from Kansas City, Lincoln, Denver and Europe.
Founded in 1642 by French colonists, Montréal is both the 2nd largest city in Canada and the 2nd largest French-speaking metropolis in the world. A place of contrasts, with glass towers standing aside historic stone buildings, both French and English spoken throughout the downtown core, a vast network of cycling paths and urban parks amidst the bustle of modern city life, Montréal offers a secure, dynamic and exciting location for all seasons.
From the cobbled streets of charming Old Montréal to the movement and activity of the modern downtown, the gorgeous views from magnificent Mount Royal Park, the cosmopolitan diversity of citizens and neighbourhoods plus an exhilarating and diverse nightlife, the city offers an endless selection of restaurants, pubs and nightclubs open to all tastes and budgets for visitors and locals alike. Come to Montréal and experience the magic yourself!
Located in the province of Quebec along the St.Lawrence Seaway, Montréal is one of the oldest cities on the North American continent, founded by French settlers over 350 years ago. Cosmopolitan and accessible, Montréal enjoys a solid reputation for innovative gastronomy, outstanding galleries and museums as well as an exciting calendar of sports and cultural events throughout the year.
In addition to the over 1 million tourists that visit the city each year, almost 150,000 students are enrolled in its 4 universities, which yearly award 60,000 diplomas and degrees. Historical yet modern, it is a city of contrasts, its European ancestry coupled with a new world setting, towering glass and steel skysrcapers beside neo-gothic cathedrals, and the everyday use of both French and English in shops and on the streets downtown.
