Toronto is a large modern metropolis, a busy port on Lake Ontario and an important industrial center of Canada. The city arose on the site of an ancient Indian settlement in the 18th century, the first colonists were the French.
Modern Toronto is a genetic diversity of desperate seekers of a better life: subjects of the British crown, Irish, Italians, Jews, Chinese. Even in the XX-XXI centuries. the city retained its status as a leading immigration center.
The visiting card of the capital of the province of Ontario is ultra-modern cultural centers, sports arenas and green parks. Slender rows of skyscrapers rise against the backdrop of the blue waters of the bay, snow-white yachts scurry along the coast, and happy Canadians stroll along the well-groomed streets. It is this picture that most clearly characterizes the appearance of Toronto.
