Toronto amazes not just with its looks, but also with lies deep beneath the surface. So much intellect and cultural knowledge and diversity is collected in the Canadian capital.
It is important to know that more than half of the city's population were born outside the country's borders. This paint a very complex picture of the place itself, but it is exactly what sparked NOMADSofORIGIN's interest in Toronto. Imagine this palette of cultural significance and inherited history, all those people living as neighbours, calling the same land their home. Now this is something humanity can be proud of.
Differences are united in Toronto. A total of 140 different languages are spoken by the locals. It has a kind of eccentric atmosphere, one that makes you feel alive. The nightlife is like a little world on its own. The clubs are open until late, the bars are often busy, and people like to celebrate all kinds of occasions. Festivals are just another way to bring strangers close together. People are warm. Being used to tourists, they just want to make you feel welcomed in their land.
The winter is cold and crispy, but the summer makes up for it. Spring is colourful and vibrant, and we recommend exploring the territory then as you can witness new life starting and the way the city's blood pumps up.
The Royal Ontario Museum is an important place in Toronto. Inside, you can see skeletons of dinosaurs and learn about our prehistoric world, long before humans set foot anywhere on the globe. Toronto is one of the most culturally diverse cities in Canada and for this alone it is worthy of your attention.
