Cozy, beautiful, calm.. this is the typical image one already has about Canada. You can see its beautiful mountains with snow in the top, typical stores and a perfect weather. Everyone seems to be happy and calm. This was pretty much my favorite part of my year exchange in Canada, plus it has an awesome night life.

The Banff Centre is where we heard the popular fiddle player Eileen Ivers play several years ago. We always try to see if there are any interesting performances happening during our stay in Banff during the winter. Ticket prices are very reasonable and you can purchase tickets on line. The Banff Centre also has three different dining places with varying... More

Scenic location with very good facilities for meetings and performances. Nearby are accommodations that are comfortable but priced a bit high. But it's Banff.
