BELGRADE

Welcome to

What makes Belgrade special?

Toronto is a multicultural metropolis, boasting 6.4 million residents. You can find everything here, including tons of entertainment, museums, bars, islands, and a  waterfront! This dynamic city is always changing, with tons of developments and new restaurants or bars openings weekly.

In the summertime, Toronto is a center of music and culture, filled with festivals every week showcasing cultures, food, music, and so much more! We have the largest street festival in North America (Caribana), as well as mega-music festivals such as VELD, Digital Dreams, Boots and Hearts, and WayHome. Check out BlogTO for the most up to date events. We like to think of summer as "Patio Season", as many of the locals love to just hang out with a meal or drink on a nice patio. You can take a swim at Woodbine Beach, hike in Rouge Park, High Park, or along the many Ravines, or take in a beautiful view at Scarborough Bluffs.

 

During the wintertime, Torontonians love enjoying the outdoors with some skiing at nearby Blue Mountain, or snowshoeing/tobogganing/sledding at one of the many parks. Brace yourself for the weather, as Toronto experience both hot and cold extremes throughout the year. When locals need to get somewhere downtown, they usually escape the cold in the PATH System, which stretches 30KM underground boasting 1,200 shops, making it the largest underground shopping complex in the world! 

No matter what time of year you come to Toronto, you will have hundreds of things to do. If you like Museums, we have the ROM (Canada's largest museum), AGO (Art Gallery), BATA Shoe Museum, and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Change it up with a visit to Graffiti Alley, an alleyway decorated with unique graffiti, where it's legal and always changing!  If you like shopping, our streets are filled with boutiques and shops, and the Eaton Center mall has 235 shops in the heart of the city.
