As a multicultural metropolis, the Greater Montreal area offers a unique blend of old world French and European influences combined with a modernized view on business and technology.
Montreal, originally named Ville-Marie has 1,9 million inhabitants – making it the second largest city in Canada. Now named after its famed Mount Royal, the island’s 34 neighboring boroughs lie in close proximity to one another. Living in such a densely populated cluster offers its citizens and visitors alike the chance to explore the city’s diverse attractions.
Here’s what the city has to offer :
- Colonized by the French and the British, Montreal’s Architecture reflects the many different styles of that period. There are over 50 official historic buildings registered on the island, ranging from the Bank of Montreal, Bonsecours Market, and Notre-Dame Basilica in the Old Port, to the more notable Art Deco styles of the Canadian Historical Museum, UdeM, and Atwater Market to name a few. Finally, there are the post-modern inceptions such as the 1000 de la Ginchetière building and even the newly erected Quebec National Archives Museum.
- In terms of Art and culture, there is the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal, Pointe-à-Callière and Châtein Ramezay to name a few. This year, May 29th 2011, the BMMD (Board of Montreal Museum Directors) celebrated Mtl Museums day in recognition of its 25 years of excellence.
- The Performing Arts and music heavily influence the city as well, where you can experience internationally renowned events such as the Jazz Festival in the new Quartier des spectacles. This area contains Place des Arts, home to the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. In addition, there is the Canadian Grand Prix, Just for Linghs and Osheaga Festival to name a few…
- Leisure and recreational activities can also be experienced off the island which hosted the Summer Olympic Games and the 1967 World Expositions – l’Ile Notre-Dame and Ile des Soeurs; along Montreal’s triad of sites including the Botanical Gardens, Insectarium and Biodome surrounding the Olympic Stadium.
- An incredible Shopping experience awaits you in Montreal’s fashion districts. High-end boutiques are located along Sherbrooke Street West and more trendy areas like The Plateau Mont-Royal on Saint-Denis Street. Finally, gastronomic delights can be explored in specialty ethnic shops along the ‘Main’, Leonard Cohen’s iconic Saint-Laurent Street.
