 +===== Montréal =====
 +
 +Montréal is a place where people from all around the globe come together to enjoy a Canadian city with a European life-style. An island set along the mighty St. Lawrence River, Montréal is known as the city built around a mountain, “Mont Real” meaning “Real Mountain”,​ which is dominating the city and from the top of which can be enjoyed a breathtaking view (local transportation,​ walking paths, and organised tours are available). Montréal has an international reputation for excellent dining. You can find anything you want and it's a great place to try something new! Montréal offers a restaurant for every budget and every taste. Each year, its infrastructure accommodates thousands of tourists enjoying the many international events, such as the Jazz Festival or the International Film Festival. Montréal has one of the lowest North American crime rates. No dangerous area exists and visitors can safely walk around the city at any time of day or night. In public places, restaurant or public transportation,​ the usual precautions suffice to make a period spent in Montréal enjoyable and safe.
