Old Montreal is the historic district of the famous city and can be viewed individually or with the help of a guide.

We could choose from a 30, 60 or a 90 minute guided tour of the city but we wanted to explore the city on our own. So we bought a 5 dollar, almost 30 pages long brochure and started our 'adventure'.

It is so interesting to see how the change in time on the architecture and style of the buildings. Almost every building, especially if they are bigger, has a bit of history engraved in its design. And as you move long to the new part of the city, modern buildings emerge and you can already see the skyscrapers pointing high to the sky. It is an amazing view and a great feeling to 'watch' history changing on Montreal's aspect.

Around 32 km long chain of tunnels connect various shopping malls, museums, banks, hotels, universities, 7 metro rail stations, 1 bus terminal, [...]
