Historically Edmonton has served as a so called "gateway" to the wealth of the North. The city has reached particular popularity during the Klondike gold rush. Through the city has laid the way to the north-west of the country, to Yukon and Alaska. Today, the economic potential and cultural significance of Edmonton competes with many cities of the country.
The unusual atmosphere of Edmonton will be of particular interest to tourists. The inevitable noise of the business center is wonderfully mixed with calm and cozy atmosphere of the northern part of the city. This place has a huge industrial potential, but at the same time it is focused on the preservation of family values, that are especially important on the north. Large number of green parks along the river, on which the city stands, only contributes to this. The townspeople apply many efforts to make sure the North Saskatchewan River remains clean.
