Ottawa's downtown is lovely, with blocks of neat Victorian-age brick houses turned into shops, restaurants, and homes. Parliament Hill features medieval-style spires and towers. Behind are the Gatineau Hills, serving as a beautiful scene for this unique capital city. Ottawa is proud of the warmth of its people, it's history and new transformations, and the beauty & romance of the city. In the spring, the city is transformed by the blankets of tulips, daffodils, and flowers of every type that welcome visitors to parks and streets.
