Many people mistakenly think that Toronto is the capital of Canada. Actually, its capital is the city where I am now, Ottawa.
Just after a heavy snowfall in early April, Ottawa seems to be baptized, and the sky is particularly clear and transparent. If you are on a tight day, choose a few classic places:
- Capitol Hill, made up of three Gothic buildings, is the seat of the Canadian federal government and is a symbol of Ottawa and even Canada.
- Peace Pagoda, known as the world's finest Gothic building, is also the tallest building in the Capitol.
- The Changming Fire Station was built to commemorate the founding of Canada for a hundred years and has been burning since 1967. The three places above
are all in the same place and it is very convenient to visit.
Ridau Canal: The 202-kilometer canal smashes the history of the city, and every Ottawa is proud of the important historical and historical status of the Rideau Canal.
National Art Museum: Canada's cultural treasures and collections of art and culture, the works of famous Renaissance artists and world-class artists have been exhibited and treasured here.
National History Museum: It is a good place to learn about Canada's 20,000 years of human history, human history, and people's cultural diversity.
Check in at the "Lord Elgin Hotel", all of which are within 2 km of the nearby area and within walking distance.
Ottawa has a beautifully decorated interior with a low-profile interior.
The entire building of the Notre Dame de Ottawa is not so special from the outside. After entering the door, it was completely shocked by a solemn and magnificent, impressive two towers, pillars inside the church, sculptures on the walls and statues of saints. Etc., are the elaborate works of the 19th century artists. The
church stained glass is also very beautiful, and tourists can visit it for free when the mass is not held. It is said that this neo-Gothic church is the oldest surviving in Ottawa, and the church was designated as the National Historic Site of Canada in 1990. Even if it was from the past in the 19th century, the pillars of the church still use the characteristics of the Canadian maple leaf, and the green transparent yellow is bright.
I didnt really have a lot of church people at this time. I didnt dare to speak loudly and dare not make a big noise. Standing in the middle of the lobby to take pictures, you can clearly hear the shutter sound of yourself and the surrounding camera.
The stained-glass windows of the basic church are very nice, and the color is well presented through the natural light that the outside world puts in. The picture shows probably some of the stories told in the Bible. I have not read the Bible, so I don't know what each painting wants to express.
Canada's most popular museum, you can also watch IMAX movies! The main purpose of the
Canadian History Museum is to collect, research, preserve, and display a variety of objects that reflect the history of Canadians and the cultural diversity of their people.
Although, the history of the country of Canada is itself a few hundred years. Although it is less than five thousand years of my great country, but the short history is very detailed in this museum. The scene restored many of Canada's buildings in primitive society, colonial times and modern times, and many scenes were built to let you be there, and you have to admire the humanized design and facilities of others! I was wondering before because Baidu searched out the Canadian Civilization Museum. Later, the Raiders said that the Canadian Museum of History, formerly known as the "Canadian Civilization Museum", was renamed in 2012, so some outdated materials and maps still use the previous names.
I think the most shocking thing about this museum is the First Peoples Hall, a permanent exhibition that showcases the long history of Canadian Aboriginal people in North America for 20,000 years and an outstanding contribution to the country. There are a lot of things that Aboriginal people lived, used items, and tall totems.
Here is 5:00-8 pm every Thursday, but free tickets to visit! And the ticket also contains an IMAX movie, is it amazing!
Everywhere I go to a city, I like to visit the local cultural and art centers of museums, art galleries and exhibition halls in the city. It can be said that the National Art Gallery of Canada in the center of Ottawa is the most I have seen. One of the museums of the soul.
A huge spider at the door, the eyes are also a bit rebellious and chic. The entire building of the museum itself is a beautiful piece of art. Whether it is from a distance or a close-up perspective, this architecturally rich building is an irregular geometric figure that can create infinite imagination. The use of transparent glass and other materials and the rational use of light make the interior of the museum appear spacious and bright, and the structure is clear at a glance, so you can feel the details of art in a comfortable way!
The museum houses the most valuable works of art in Canada and Europe. On the first floor is the Canadian Pavilion, where you can admire Canada's ancient Aboriginal and Inuit art to understand the origins of the nation and the cultures that are about to disappear; in the contemporary art gallery, you can appreciate the inclusive art style of modern Canada. The second floor is an international exhibition area that brings together Asian art, European art, and modern art. The works of famous artists of the Renaissance and the world's top artists have been exhibited and treasured here.
Tickets: 6 Canadian dollars
opening hours 4: April to October, winter closed; 10am to 6pm; public holidays closed
address: 80 Sussex Drive
This is a lot of the Capitol
the whole of Ottawa. Regardless of the angle and where it is, you may notice the Capitol on the Capitol Hill, or the tower of peace. This is the symbol of Ottawa and even Canada. Of course, if you want to enter the Capitol, you need to make an appointment online in advance. The entire tour guide will guide you through the tour.
Why do you say a lot?
1, If you come in the morning, you can see the changing ceremony of the Royal Guards in front of the Capitol. I was actually mistakenly hitting the day. I found the crowd gathered early in the past and I was lucky enough to see this practice ceremony. The team dressed in uniforms of soldiers is now step by step from my eyes. One team is an instrumental performance, and two teams are guards. Except for the conspicuous red color, I am very curious. Is it really hot to wear this hat in the summer? Still boldly guessing, there must be an ice bag in the hat to relieve the heat!
2. If you are coming in the summer evening, the Capitol will stage the Capitol Hill Sound and Light Show. I was watching a long film about Canadian history! Sound effects, lighting, and animation are all wonderful! Although the whole process... I will use French to speak French for a while, of course... I dont understand... At around 8:30, many people have already occupied the lawn. One more thing is that, at the end of the day, after admiring Canada, the national anthem rang, and then everyone sitting in it began to sing the national anthem with music, which is amazing!
The National Gallery of Canada, a collection of modern art and numerous collections.
The National Gallery of Canada is located in the heart of Ottawa, and it takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Byward Market. The museum has a collection of the most valuable works of art in Canada and Europe and has a long history. The number of Canadian art exhibited in the museum is the highest in the world, while the number of European and American art is the highest in Canada.
If you come close to see the huge bronze spider sculpture "Maman" at the door, the instructions will come. But I feel like I have seen it in many places and I can't think of it.
I think that the design of the glass crystal of the museum itself is already a tribute to the design! The museum has three floors. The third floor is the exhibition room of Asian art, modern art, European art, the second floor is Canadian art and Eskimo art, and the first floor has a very fine bookstore (like every art gallery or The museum will have some related souvenir shops nearby.)
The museum needs to buy tickets for the visit, 12 Canadian dollars for adults, 10 Canadian dollars for seniors and students, 6 Canadian dollars for teenagers, free for children under 11 years old and members, free to buy tickets for cash.
