Thanks to the city guides who take tourists to the “secret places”, but also to the well-known sights that this city has to offer and for which it is known, among other things, and where more than 2.4 million people live.
Well-known and well-known buildings
The city, Vancouver is a very young city. In 1986 this Canadian city celebrated its 100th anniversary. Buildings from the first decades of the 20th century and thus from a time when Vancouver was not that old can be found in many local corners to which city guides like to take foreign tourists. These include the former courthouse that now houses the Art Gallery, located on Homby Street. Another destination for many tourists is the terracotta-clad Dominion Building, which was the tallest building in the British Empire from 1908 to 1910. The town’s landmark, the Marine Building erected in 1930, is, of course, one of the local corners to which city guides also take foreign holidaymakers. One of the most beautiful corners of the city is Canada Place, where the landing stages of the large cruise ships are. From here the ships start on excursions to Alaska. In addition, numerous festivals take place at this location.

Vancouver in Canada is also a shoppers paradise. There are numerous shopping streets that are easy to find. In addition, there are markets that make shopping in this city a real experience.
