Skyscraper in Toronto


With a population nearing seven million, Toronto is a diverse, modern city that’s nestled between winding rivers, endless ravines, and viridescent urban forests that sometimes feel like a Lewis Carrol world, when you remember you’re just a few miles from a skyline of skyscrapers.
The capital isn’t just a place where nature intersects with man; it’s one of the cultural hubs of Canada, being home to several important creative spaces across a range of fields, so there’s plenty of entertainment to keep you titillated. Plus, there’s dozens of museums and galleries, as well as some of the best food offerings in the world. And, of course, the city itself is adorned with cloud-tickling buildings, so it’s the perfect place to holiday if you want to see some astounding views.
