Kass Lome – unusual sight of Toronto
Kass Lome is one of the most beautiful and popular tourist places of the capital of the Province of Ontario.

Fine appearance of Kass Lome is supplemented by surprising flower compositions, fountains and mysterious sculptures.
New town hall (Toronto) – sight in modernist style
The design of this sight was developed by the Finnish architect Vilyo Revell. He won the international tender for creation of this object. Construction of the New town hall ended in 1965, and since then it is an integral part of any round on Toronto. At present here the city council sits, but it will not prevent to conduct tours and various actions for tourists in any way. The excellent vacation spot is the square in front of buildings of a town hall. By the way, in winter months it is used also as a skating rink. Also here Henry Moore’s statue (the famous English sculptor and the artist), an eternal flame and a beautiful garden of the world is located. The sight is open on weekdays, free entrance. Surely visit the New town hall, otherwise your impressions about the city will be incomplete.
