Sightseeing in Winnipeg - what to see. Complete travel guide

Winnipeg, Canada A small town Winnipeg, located nearby a lake with the same name, needed a hundred of years to turn from a modest settlement into a modern megalopolis and a center of industry and tourism of Canada. This city has become very popular among immigrants due to cheap prices for apartments, so while walking on the streets of Winnipeg you can hear English, French, Ukrainian and Russian languages. Such cultural diversity couldn’t have failed to make an impact on the traditions of the city and so today there are many cultural centers in Winnipeg.
The main city’s sight is Royal Canadian Mint that makes coins for Canada and some other countries even nowadays. Entering this building is prohibited, but you will be amazed even by the look of this house as its architecture is really unusual.
Assiniboine Park is the most popular place for people who enjoy walking. The park is also a great place to explore the beauty of the Canadian nature. If you visit Winnipeg with kids, don’t forget to attend Kildonan Park that is located in this city. Architecture fans should consider visiting Exchange Quarter, where you will find beautiful buildings of the Victorian period. As this city is a home for people of different nationalities, you will find Italian, French quarters, and China town. In each of the quarters you can find chains of shops and restaurants made in best traditions of some culture. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

However, the complex was abolished just a few years after commissioning. For more than 40 years the military construction has been disregarded.
