Montreal is really a unique city.
It is the second-largest French speaking city in the world (after Paris). The official language is french but nearly everyone speaks english as well.
Another interesting fact, Lonely planet chose Montreal as the 2nd happiest city in the world!
Maybe because of all the festivals :)
All summer long festivals run one after the other. I got the chance to see a couple of them!
Montreal International Jazz Festival650 concerts (450 of which are free).
2.5 million visitors.
10 outdoor stages and 10 indoor...
...a massive festival with great music!
Festival Week-ends du MondeA different country is represented each weekend. This time it was Peru.
|An awesome cocktail!|
Piknic ElectronikIf you love electronic music like me, the Piknic electronic is a must!
It's a Montreal outdoor tradition. Set in the lovely Parc Jean-Drapeau, you can dance under the huge moderne art sculpture (l'Homme). You can also just wander around enjoying the beautiful waterfront view and the park.
