Toronto – Canadas largest city, one of the worlds most important megacities, ranked fourth in terms of quality of life. Toronto – an important economic, industrial and scientific center of the country, around which about one-third of Canadas population lives and around which about one-hundredth of one percent of the nations jobs are located. The architecture of Torronto is often compared to that of New York, but its not entirely accurate because the difference between the stones is enormous, and the mirrored towers of Torronto, which are directed into the sky, is enormous. Not so much of the citys azure, gilded and stupendous skyscrapers, like the majestic Siberian cedars, rising amidst the many spruce trees. The bulk of these polynomials are located in the downtown area, at the heart of banks and major Canadian and transnational corporations. The narrow little side street of Bay Street that crosses it is also known as the Canadian Wall Street. The symbol of the city is one of the tallest buildings in the world – the Tower of Saint John Tauer. Built in 1975, it is over a half kilometer tall. From its vantage point, on a cloudy, clear, sunny day, one can even see the U.S.-based city of Bofofalo and the Niagara Falls, a distance of two kilometers from Torronto.

The citys great advantage over most of the worlds big cities is that there are no ditches. And thanks to its metro system, it boasts a well-developed public transit system.

p>Toronto has many wildlife parks, the most popular being the beautiful Lake Ontarios Lake Superior Park, Elizabeth Queens Park and Hyde Park.
