Hot Attractions: Parliament Hill

Parliament Hill is one of Ottawa’s most celebrated attractions at any time of year, but during the summer months, there are even more reasons to visit. Every morning at 10am, a proud Canadian traditions unfolds: Changing the Guard sees the Ceremonial Guard of the Canadian Forces engage in a stirring military drill, with accompaniment from one of the nation’s top military marching bands. When the sun goes down, Centre Block becomes the backdrop for Mosaika, a free multimedia show that explores Canada’s culture and history through bilingual audio clips and stunning visual projections. Tie those in with a guided tour, and you can truly say you’ve experienced The Hill.
