The Island of Montréal is located between the Montérégie and Laval. Its southern part is circled by the St. Lawrence River, while its northern part follows Rivière des Prairies. It has a population of nearly 2 million inhabitants, which makes Montréal the most densely populated region in Québec although its surface area is one of the smallest in the province. This highly urbanized region is teeming with attractions and services. It benefits from an extensive public transportation service, including bus, metro and commuter train networks, along with an international airport.
City-dwellers who thrive on an exciting, fast-paced lifestyle will find an endless array of activities, events, museums, art galleries and theatres. Just to name a few, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Science Centre, the Musée d'art contemporain, La Ronde Amusement Park, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Musée Pointe-à-Callière, the Société des arts technologiques, and the Casino de Montréal offer a wide range of entertainment.
Let's not forget the hundred festivals and events that are in full swing all year round in Greater Montréal, namely the Festival international de jazz, the Just For Laughs Festival, the Festival TransAmériques, the World Film Festival, the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Montréal en lumière, The Rogers Cup tennis tournament, and L'International des feux Loto Québec.
Nature lovers seeking relaxation within the city will gladly visit the Botanical Garden, the Biodôme along with the 20 parks across the Island of Montréal, such as Jean-Drapeau Park, Maisonneuve Park, Jarry Park, Mount Royal Park and La Fontaine Park.
The architectural heritage of the metropolis comprises the former Montréal Court-House, a neoclassical style institutional structure raised in the 1850s, the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal, a religious Gothic revival style building erected in the 1820s, and Château Dufresne, a sumptuous Beaux-Arts style residence.
