Ottawa is the capital of Canada. Ottawa has four seasons. Where if summer arrives, the temperature there is really very hot, and vice versa when winter arrives, the temperature there is really very cool. But even so, Ottawa is famous for its winter. When winter arrives, the temperature in Ottawa could peak at -40 degrees Celsius. The right place for those who love the cold air. If you want to vacation in the winter, I recommend taking a thick jacket and wearing layers.
In the summer time, Ottawa is not less interesting, because a lot of festivals from different countries and you can enjoy the beautiful city of Ottawa. Ottawa is also famous for the tulip festival is held every year by the government.
In addition, Ottawa also has a Calypso Water Park. Calypso is the largest waterpark in Canada. So do not worry, like the summer or winter, Ottawa still interesting to visit. Below are some of the places frequented by many tourists.
Parliament Hill is home to the Canadian Federal legislature and an iconic symbol of the Canadian state’s commitment to democracy and peace. Parliament Hill is one of the tourist spots visited by many tourists. Many performances are held outside of parliament. For example, The Changing of the Guard Ceremony, Christmas Lights Across Canada, musical sound and light show, and also an event center during Canada Day.
Next, Rideau Canal, which opened in 1832. The canal was built as a precaution in case of war with the United States and is still used today. For the moment Rideau Canal is often used for water sport. Many people are canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boating in the summer time.
While at the time of winter, the Rideau Canal is the world’s largest skating rink. With a length of 7.8 kilometers and has a surface area equivalent to 90 ice rink for the Olympics Hockey.
Ice Skating is one of the most favorite sport for Canadians during the winter. If you want to feel like skating and skating rink are not just spinning in one arena, the Rideau Canal is a very appropriate place.
The place is no less interesting is the ByWard Market, founded by Lieutenant Colonel John By in 1826. The ByWard Market is one of the oldest and largest public markets in Canada. Farmers and Traders of handicrafts from across the region gather to sell their wares.
A wide variety of cafes are also there in the ByWard Market. One of the cafés visited by US President Barack Obama. And until now they sell one of the cookies are named by Obama cookies. If you wish to test, please feel free to stop by to Ottawa.
