Just got back from there. What a grand, stately, fabulously beautiful city! Wellington Street, the Rideau Canal, the Parliament buildings high on that cliff, the park lands, etc. Ottawa is a gem.

I loved how bilingual Ottawa is too. Magnifique!

Ottawa is a lovely city.

The parliaments building are striking and add a lot of flavour to the skyline. They also inhibit the height due to height restriction and parliament being on a hill makes the downtown look even smaller.

It doesn't have much of a skyline but the density is certainly there. Ottawa has a lot of office and residential towers downtown but due to the height restrictions of about 30 storeies and parliament being so phsically elevated, it doesn't appear to have at first glance.

The sheer number of highrises Ottawa has for a metro of 1.25 is quite shocking really and actually has as many buildings over 10 stories as the far more dramatic skyline of Calgary.
