Canada, part 1
Canada is the second biggest country in the world in terms of the surface. It impresses visiting tourists with its raw and beautiful landscapes of uncontaminated nature, openness to other cultures and original attractions.
Travel to Canada requires adequate preparation. You need to get Canadian dollars and warmer clothes if you go on a journey to the north of the country. Currently, you can travel from Poland to Canada only by plane. You do not need a visa, if you go there for less than half a year. Because Canada is very big country, some cities can be reached only by plane or train. The most expensive means of transportation are the very convenient and safe trains and buses. In larger cities is best to travel by public transport or rented car.

In hundreds of existing reserves and as many as 41 national parks, you can find many rare plant species (e.g. sassafrases, Kentucky coffeetrees, larches, arnicas) and animals (for example elk, reindeer, foxes, bears: grizzly, brown and polar) . Particularly interesting in this respect are: Wood Buffalo Park, which is an oasis of bison, Gros Morne National Park, located in Newfoundland, where you can meet migrating caribou reindeers and impressive fjords, Yoho National Park rich in monumental fossils, Nahanni National Park with huge waterfalls and gorges deeper than the Grand Canyon and Kluane park with beautiful northern landscape.
