國會山莊是很有特色建筑，歐風建筑，有一種古色古香的美，此次来訪，有點失落，國會山莊整修中，有點刹風景，為何在七月最熱鬧時段整修，真的不可理解。 more »The mountain is very distinctive architecture, beautiful buildings, there is a kind of antique beauty, this time, there is a little loss, the national mountain renovation, there is a bit of a moment, why in July the most time renovation, really incomprehensible.
All Canadians should attend and watch Question Period or a debate. See for yourself how legislation is made. I highly recommend it! The area is so historic and interesting! Loved it!
Dedicated free tour. Hats off to govt of Canada for doing that. Very informative guides. You have a chance to see the house and Senate floors along with the library which is the highlight of the tour. You can also visit peace tower and a gift shop on your own. Must do in Ottawa!
