Toronto is Canada’s largest city and the capital of Ontario province. We were lucky enough to be able to visit the city on looooong road trip. This is the first post from a series about Toronto, Ottawa, Niagara Falls and the other places we’ve visited there. I won’t get into too many details about Toronto, as you can read all statistics on Wikipedia, but I’ll tell you it’s one busy city, unlike Halifax.

Once I’ve exited PATH (the walkway under the downtown skyscrapers) I’ve started to remember the feeling of living in big city (I’ve lived 12 years in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania) and I have to say I’ve missed the crowds from downtown, but I don’t think I want to go back to living in a big city anymore.

Yeap, it’s dirtier than a small province city, but it also feels more alive, with busy streets well into the night. In the Downtown area is where you’ll find the tallest skyscrapers, not that high compared to their siblings in USA, but big enough to make you feel a small person in a big city. There’s one exception, and that’s the CN Tower, the second tallest building in the world right now (not a skyscraper, but a man-made building nonetheless).

Toronto managed to keep old buildings alive right next to modern glass and steel skyscrapers and that means you’ll be able to find something to please your eyes no matter what architectural style you adhere to most. Personally I enjoy modern cities more than old towns, but I know that’s a rarity and doesn’t necessarily speak well about my architectural taste, but what can you do?

Since we’ve upgrade our camera it’s easier to show you Downtown Toronto, even at night, so I hope you’ll enjoy of the pictures we’ve took during this trip. You have to admit they’re cool:
