BetTerDAYKingston almost became the capital of the Canadian province at the time, but now there is not even a Starbucks mug dedicated to it, but given its historical status, it is still worth a special trip to visit by train.
BetTerDAYKingston’s most popular attraction is its City Hall, even more magnificent than the Ottawa Parliament Building and Montreal City Hall. It is said that Kingston almost became the capital of the Canadian province. The City Hall was the product of the ambitions at the time and became a historical treasure.
wxx1026The main attraction is to see the island of Heart. The Bolt castle is said to be the most luxurious castle that the American rich man who bought the island of Heart in the early 1900s planned to build for his wife. It has been built for four years since 1900. It was not expected that his wife died just before the castle was finished, and Bolt never set foot on the island. Heart Island was later bought by the U.S. government and developed into a tourist attraction in the Thousand Island Lakes. Sure enough, the building with the story can inspire imagination.
BetTerDAYKingston does not have the huge churches like Notre Dame Cathedral and Saint Joseph's Church in Montreal, but the small and exquisite churches can be said to be everywhere, especially the densest concentration within three kilometers of the city hall
130***38Kingston, Ontario, Canada is not only famous for Thousand Island Lake. Since its opening in 1600, it has accumulated more than 400 years of history and has become a world cultural heritage. Ancient buildings are concentrated in the old city, especially the churches are outrageous.
The capital of the great powers is as big as the market.
Kingston, Canada. The city has a population of 124,000. It is not the smallest city, but it has been the first capital in Canadian history. The capital of China's Guwenli is called Beijing, so Canadian Chinese are more accustomed to refer to the Chinese translation of Kingston (King's City) as Kingston.
Since Kingston is the node between the three most important cities in eastern Canada (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa), visitors to the Canton area will stop at Kingston Town but stay. The impression is beautiful!
Tourists arrive at the old train station square, and the city hall is opposite. Here you can see what a small station in the early days of the Pacific Railway looked like, and a retired steam locomotive. Next to it is the sea of Lake Ontario, where many gull birds fly for food.
The day I arrived was exactly the weekend. Near the old railway station, the streets behind the city hall became a temporary market. At this time, it seems that a city has turned into a big market, and the cars come and go. There are a wide variety of food and fruit daily necessities and handicrafts on the stalls. A graceful grandmother carefully chained the pearls to make me stay for a long time.
I also saw the unique maple syrup in Canada. I remembered a funny and well-matched phrase - "I remember that when I used the bottle of gorgeous maple syrup to supplement the meal, I thought it was just like this. It is the spring breeze, the sweetness of the silk, and the unique taste of the maple leaf. Suddenly, the yearning for the 'Maple Leaf Country' is blooming."
