Montreal is a great place to call home and if you’re moving alone or with family, you should ensure you choose the right moving company. Montreal was first founded in 1642, but officially incorporated as a city in 1832. It is the largest city in the province of Quebec, and second largest city in Canada. It has a population of 1,704,694 (updated in 2016). Montreal has a strong francophone population and is set on an island along the Saint Lawrence river. The residential districts in the downtown core can be dated from the 20th century; with two-three story buildings in a row. A very well-known fact about these districts is that most of them have an outdoor stairway access which is the trademark architecture of Montreal.
Montreal’s landscape is dominated by Mont Royal, which provides a breathtaking view for tourists and locals. As Montreal is on a river, it has a seaport which is key to Eastern North America. The city has an intricate underground subway system that is distinct from your classic subway since it is on rubber tires.
An interesting fact about Montreal is that it hosts Canadian Grand Prix Formula One automobile races annually. Another event Montreal hosted was the Olympics in 1976 which is also significant. In addition, there is a stunning Botanical Garden, founded in 1931, which can be found next to the Olympic stadium, and is considered to be one of the largest in the world.
The city has a mix of both an old and new charm. It is a great tourist city with several beautiful and mesmerizing sights to see. Old Montreal gives tourists a taste of Europe, as it has cobblestone streets and sidewalk cafes to enjoy. One of the most notable sights is the Notre-Dame Basilica which is definitely a must-see in Montreal.
