closeMontreal, long Canada's largest city, is the second largest French-speaking city in the world.
Founded in the 17th century as Ville-Marie, Montreal soon developed into a large multilingual metropolis. But as tensions between French and English speaking inhabitants rose during the 20th century, businesses moved out and the city's growth came to a halt.
Thanks to its long history Montreal boasts a large number of attractions, ranging from the historic Notre-Dame Basilica to the modern Olympic Stadium.
