With 1.6 million residents, Montréal is Canada's second largest city. This lively metropolis is located in the southwestern part of Québec province on the St. Lawrence Seaway. Montréal is known for its short summers, snowy winters and mild spring and autumn weather. With a bit of luck, from mid-September to early October you can experience the famous Indian Summer.

The official language in Québec's capital is French - but English is understood everywhere. Particular sites worth visiting are the Place Jacques Cartier, the former residence of the French governor and Chateau Ramzay. The oldest church in the city is the Notre Dame de Bonsecour Basilica. St. Joseph's Oratory, which rises to a height of 97 m, features a dome construction and is Canada's largest church. It is located in Mont Royal Park, the city's highest point. From here, visitors have a tremendous view of the city and its impressive skyline with its many churches. It's no wonder that Montréal is also called the "city of a hundred belltowers". Moreover, Montréal is also a first rate art metropolis: At the Place des Arts are the Montréal Symphony and several theaters. The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art present fascinating art collections. The well restored historic harbor quarter invites visitors to take a stroll. And there's great shopping in Montréal's "Underground City", the world’s largest. Moreover, the nightlife in the Rue Crescent district, with its numerous jazz cafés and restaurants, is highly recommended. Every year, one of the largest and most well known jazz festivals in the world takes place in Montréal - the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal.
