Information about the city of Halifax in Canada

Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada's Atlantic provinces. The city's origins and rich maritime history stem from a strategic location and one of the world's largest natural harbours. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Halifax was the starting point for European immigration to Canada. Today, Halifax is a busy Atlantic seaport and the economic and cultural centre of Eastern Canada.

Halifax is the linchpin of Nova Scotia. However, with 425,000 inhabitants, it is a small town according to North American standards. Instead of relegating themselves to the "second violin" status, this contrast is lived by the inhabitants, who are proud of their quiet nature and warm hospitality.

Halifax is relatively extensive and scattered. Public transport is limited and mostly impractical outside the city centre. The attractions in the city centre or shopping facilities will keep the average traveller busy for one day or a maximum of two. Beyond this timeframe, renting a rental car will make the surroundings much more interesting.
