Such complicated history reflected on the modern country’s culture. At present, Canada is one of the most versatile countries from a religious point of view. Here live people who profess different religions, from Christianity and Judaism to Islam and Buddhism. The ethnic diversity is also quite great, so many travelers do not feel like in the foreign country. Now, Canada has also two official languages, English and French. Most local residents speak both languages.
Some of the distinguishing features of the country are unique nature attractions. In the vicinity of large cities, there are amazing national parks and reserves that have not been affected by the civilization. The oldest national park in Canada is Banff. On its territory, precious thermal springs were also found. Now, the park includes an excellent thermal center that is popular not only with tourists, but also with local residents.
Fans of hiking will be definitely impressed by the national park of Jasper. It is famous for its beautiful glacial lakes and pristine natural landscapes. A lot of people visit Canada to witness large festivals. For instance, the world-famous Light Festival is held in late February in Montreal. In hot summer, Vancouver is a city where the Sea Festival takes place.
