Calgary Information

Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta, Canada. Calgary's urban scene has changed considerably since the beginning of the city's rapid growth. It is also starting to become recognized as one of Canada's most diverse cities.

Calgary's downtown features an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars, cultural venues, shopping, and public squares such as Olympic Plaza. Downtown tourist attractions include the Calgary Zoo, the TELUS World of Science, the TELUS Convention Centre, the Chinatown district, the Glenbow Museum, the Calgary Tower, the Art Gallery of Calgary (AGC) and the EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts.

Calgary has a semi-arid, highland continental climate with long, dry, but highly variable, winters and short, moderately warm summers. As a consequence of Calgary's high elevation and relative dryness, summer evenings can be very cool, the average summer minimum temperature drops to +8°C, and frosts can occur in any month of the year.
