Canada: Welcome to Toronto



Info : Toronto is the biggest Canadian city and 5th largest city in North America . Toronto is not the capital of Canada but it is cultural, entertainment, and financial capital of the nation. It is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. A relatively modern city, Toronto's history dates back to the late-18th century, when its land was first purchased by the British monarchy from the Mississaugas of the New Credit. The settlement was later established as the Town of York and proclaimed as the new capital of Upper Canada by its lieutenant-governor, John Graves Simcoe. In 1834, York was incorporated as a city and renamed to its present name. One o the biggest attractions of the city is the CN Tower standing 553 metres tall, it was completed in 1976, becoming the world's tallest free-standing structure and world's tallest tower at the time. It held both records for 34 years until the completion of Burj Khalifa and Canton Tower. It remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, a signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada, attracting more than two million international visitors annually. The Niagara Falls located about two hours away from downtown core but still considered to be one of the biggest Toronto's attractions. The waterfall has highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world and has a vertical drop of more than 50 m
