The college town of Winnipeg

Winnipeg is the capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba and with around 700,000 inhabitants it is also the largest city in the province. The city lies at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Manitoba is a very agricultural province in which large grain fields are lined up. A large part of the Canadian grain is produced in this granary of Canada, which is also due to the fact that it is very sunny throughout the year. As warm as the summers are, the winters can be just as cold, with snow guaranteed in Winnipeg reaching double-digit minus temperatures. The sunsets and sunrises as well as the northern lights, which can appear here from time to time, are worth seeing.

There are numerous lakes worth visiting in the Winnipeg area, the largest being Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. Winnipeg is well developed in terms of transport and has a railway connection that already existed in the 19th century, its own airport and the Trans-Canada Highway with direct connections to the USA.

In addition to the historical sights in Winnipeg, modern economic life also pulsates in the city. The office towers of Winnipeg are visible from afar and represent the important regional center of trade, business and finance and the large companies that have their headquarters here.
