Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Toronto is the Canada’s largest metropolis, lying on the shore of Lake Ontario, the easternmost of the Great Lakes. Toronto is considered the cultural, entertainment, and financial capital of the nation. The city is also the seat of the Ontario government.

Toronto is a sprawling multicultural city, with some sixty significant minorities. There is a wide diversity of restaurants and you'll see highrise buildings side by side with neo-Gothic and Art Deco architecture and exciting performing-arts and nightlife scenes.

Downtown and midtown boast most of the city’s best attractions, the most celebrated of them all is the CN Tower, the world's tallest free-standing structure. Next door lies the modern hump of the SkyDome sports stadium. The city's other attractions include the Art Gallery of Ontario, which possesses a first-rate selection of Canadian painting, and the Royal Ontario Museum, where pride of place goes to the Chinese collection.

The Thomson Gallery and Bata Shoe Museum are also worth a visit. The Toronto Gallery of Inuit Art, the Victorian gentility of Spadina House and the replica of Fort York, the colonial settlement where Toronto began, are also worth a look.
