Past and Present - beautiful Quebec

Quebec Quebec

Do you dream of a holiday in a place unknown, but rich in things to do? If so, we encourage you to visit Quebec – a Canadian city where you can come across many elements of European culture. So, if you're a fan of Europe or you are just looking for an attractive place to rest - take a look below!

 

Saint-Jaina street. One of the most beautiful streets in Quebec, and one of the most abundant in attractions. This is where you can find numerous boutiques and food stores, built right next to the historic city walls. Moving along, you can find not just amazing fortifications extending from Fauobourga Saint-Jean to Old Quebec, but you can also enjoy splendid attractions such as the basilica from 1647 resembling the French Cathedral of Notre-Dame, located in the old part of Quebec's Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, or the oldest grocery store in the history of the whole of North America.

Those hungry for artistic impressions are cordially invited to visit the Old Port, where you can find many reputable art galleries. Along the St. Lawrence River banks, you can find antique shops, gourmet restaurants and the incredible Museum of Civilization, where there are more than ten exhibitions on local and world cultures and civilizations. The icing on the cake turns out to be the breathtaking Fresque des Quebec, which tells the story of the city - the whole piece consists of fifteen historical figures, and a dozen leading writers and artists of Quebec.

Plains of Abraham

If you want a break from the urban hustle and bustle then welcome to the Plains of Abraham. It is a special place where the armies of the English and French clashed, and the park is considered one of the best in the world. If you want to go out of town, then very close by is the Parc de la Chute. There you can ride a cable car, go on the suspended bridge or climb the cliff. This park, open all year round, is also a place from which you are able to see a 272 foot high waterfall.

The Vallee BRAS-du-Nord provides the possibility of active rest - hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, canoeing and kayak trips. You also can not miss out on Sainte-Anne, carved into the rock of the canyon. It really is the perfect place to relax.

And after all this sightseeing, you can drop into the numerous bars and cafes, especially on the Grande Allee, where you can relax after a busy day. It is a vibrant place, encouraging you to have great fun and make new friends. You also musn’t miss out on Saint-Joseph Street. Come to Quebec!
