TORONTO

Toronto is Canada's commercial and culture centre. Located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, the city offers a fascinating combination of high-tech architecture with leafy Victorian neighbourhoods. It's a vibrant, exciting city with a multitude of sights to see and places to go.
CN Tower. This is the world's tallest free-standing structure. 553 m from the top of the transmission mast to the surface of the reflecting pool at the base. It's a tourist attraction as well as a communications tower, with indoor and outdoor observation decks, and the world's largest revolving restaurant at the 351 m.


Toronto - a great city to visit: skyline with CN Tower, Casa Loma, City Hall

Casa Loma. A fairytale castle in the heart of the city. Built in 1911 a rambling medieval-style castle, filled with the greatest luxuries and the most modern and ingenious inventions of the age.
City Hall. The symbol of Toronto's coming of age as a city of international stature. Completed in 1965, after years of acrimony, its design of twin curved towers immediately became a source of local pride.
