Montreal is a city I got to know during my exchange year in Quebec and I fell in love with its atmosphere right away! The colorfulness, the open-minded people and the mix of cultures make this place so unique.
There are numerous activities to choose from but you can easilly spend a day just by walking the streets of the Old Town and sitting in the cafés watching people. Whether you like museums, shopping or clubbing, you'll always find something here. And the good thing is the city's not huge so everything's relatively near. Trust me, Montreal is a city where you won't get bored!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Multiculturality, friendly people, not a typical North American city
  • Cons:It gets freezing in the winter
  • In a nutshell:A colourful and vibrant city with a bit of European flavor!

    Salut Lotta ! Very nice page of Montreal with great pictures (we're lucky to have so much light all year long). Take care ! Cheers from "La ville aux cent clochers" (nickname of Montreal because there is so much church in town)!

    Nice Montreal pages! And I loved the signs from Japan - I remember learning to just ignore them. Birthday greetings from Alaska - The Big 21!!
