NOOK version of our illustrated travel guide will take you to Ottawa, the capital of Canada.
Ottawa is situated along the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, opposite Gatineau, Quebec. Ottawa is the fourth largest city in Canada and the second largest in Ontario after Toronto.
Unique as a North American capital, the city is bilingual. English is the first language of a majority of the population, but French is the first language of a significant number.
Ottawa is home to many of the world's cultures as thousands of immigrants from around the world now call Ottawa home. The city is probably best known as the nation's capital but has become one of the fastest growing cities in North America owing to the booming high-tech business sector.
Finding Internet access when out and about can be problematic so carry your mobile guidebook in the palm of your hand.
