Nothing in Quebec seems more important than the province’s ongoing struggle to preserve its cultural identity. On a couple of occasions, the people of Quebec have voted on the issue of the province becoming a sovereign nation. At the last referendum, in 1995, the province was as close as it has ever been to separating from Canada. However, the people of Quebec voted to remain an important province in Canada.
But the political issues surrounding Qubec shouldn’t overshadow its remarkable beauty and the vibrancy of the people who live there. A wonderful mixture of culture, language, architecture and landscape make Quebec a thrilling and educational area to visit.
Montreal and Qubec City are Qubec’s largest cities. Montreal is a beautiful city renowned for its nightlife and world-class restaurants. Qubec City, the predominately French-speaking capital, is webbed together by historic cobblestone streets and its distinctive culture.
