Welcome to Vancouver – the city of winter Olympics

 

Vancouver is a city in the southwest of Canada, it is one of the most ethnically and linguistic diverse cities in Canada and the area around it is the third most populous metropolitan area of the country. The origins of Vancouver can be found in aboriginal people but after the discovery of America, the city has seen many different races. Now Vancouver is a growing city, with a flourishing economy and many environmental projects in process.
