In the southeastern parts of Canada you will find Montreal and with just under 2 million inhabitants, today the city is the second largest in the country. Montreal is today a watering hole for those interested in culture with several major international festivals and events. The city offers a number of interesting parts with everything from preserved architecture to state-of-the-art technology.
The old city of Montreal is located southeast of the city center. A lot has been preserved here as it was when the city was founded. There are also some museums, cathedrals and more for those who are interested in cultural history. Just south of the city center is the Olympic village from 1976. The Olympic arena still remains here and right next door you will find Montreal's botanical garden, which is one of the world's largest of its kind.
For those who want to take part in the nightlife, the area in and around Le Plateau-Mont-Royal is a good place to start. There are plenty of options with everything from trendy cocktail bars to Latin salsa clubs.
If you are lucky enough to be present when L'International des Feux Loto-Québec or the Montreal Fireworks Festival (usually June / July) takes place, we guarantee a memory for life. This is the host's largest fireworks competition!
The city's hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens, can hardly have missed anyone. The club, which is considered one of the classic teams in the NHL, has since the founding of the association in 1909 won no less than 24 Stanley Cup titles! The team plays its matches in the Center Bell arena, which is located in the middle of downtown Montreal. Hockey tickets are highly sought after here as the arena "only" seats just over 21,000 people.
A few kilometers away is the artificial island Île Notre-Dame and there you will find the racing track Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Canada's GP Formula 1 competition is held here every year.
The festivals are perhaps what characterizes Montreal's musical life. Lots of different festivals and events take place every year for all categories. One of the largest is the Montreal Jazz Festival which on average has about 2 million visitors annually.
Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport is the busiest airport in Montreal and is located about 20 km from the city center. There are direct flights from the larger airports in Europe, but if you are traveling from one of the Nordic countries, you can usually count on a stopover. Once at the airport, there are alternatives by bus and train that take you quickly and smoothly to the city center.
The currency in the city is, like the rest of Canada, the Canadian dollar. Montreal is an incredibly multicultural city and French is the mother tongue of most of its inhabitants. However, you should not have to worry if you have forgotten school French, most people also speak English.
