Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is located in Ontario. It is a city of water and nature. The Parliament, the emblem of the city, is on a hill overlooking the River Outaouais. This is the Upper Town. The Rideau canal defines the east of Ottawa, and meanders around the town. You can picnic and walk on the canal banks in the summer, and skate on its icy waters in winter. The eastern bank of the canal borders, the Down-town, is a district influenced by the English and the French. There you will also find the Laurier castle and the Museum of Fine Arts. The Byward market is an important centre of activity, with its open-air displays surrounded by shopping streets and cafés. Slightly outside the town centre, the Rideau Hall, the official residence of the governor, is in a 40 hectare garden. Opposite, the Rockliffe park has no reason to be envious of it. As well as walks on foot or bicycle rides, you can go to the belvederes and enjoy a view over the river in the foreground, and Quebec further away.
