    What to visit in Halifax?

    In the heart of Halifax, you will find museums, cemeteries, temples, gardens ... modern and historical buildings, which still show that this was a city full of privateer adventures.

    Halifax is located in the Province of Nova Scotia in eastern Canada, and it is a city that lives at its own pace, which is not the same as the rest of the country. This city was founded in 1749; from there, the first aid was sent to the victims of the Titanic in 1912, and on December 6, 1917, it was destroyed by the explosion of a French ship. Today, Halifax is identified by these historical events, and because in its territory, there are 5 of the most important universities in the country.

Even there is the largest rescued part of the famous and beautiful staircase. It is very entertaining for children because it has activities suitable for them. It is in the center of town on the Waterfront.

    Pier 21. Pier 21 was the entry point for more than a million immigrants, and today it is a very modern museum. I must emphasize that when I told my daughter that we would go to the Pier 21 Museum, she was not very enthusiastic because that "a museum about migrants" did not say much to her. Still, once we got there and started exploring, it turned out to be her favorite Halifax and one of the most liked on this trip. In Pier 21 migration, its history and the real cases of several people have explained in such a simple and entertaining way that it is easy to get hooked on this place. It is perfect and entertaining.

    Citadel. Halifax's most popular attraction that sits on a hill in the center of town. It is a star-shaped fortress from where you can see a large part of the city. It was built between 1828 and 1856 and can be visited inside; several activities in the spring and summer. Its rooms are interesting, and there you will find people dressed in the traditional way who explain every detail of the place. In front of the Citadel is an icon of the city.
