Winnipeg is the largest city and capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba. Winnipeg is located at the eastern edge of the prairie region of Western Canada, and, due to this, plays a prominent role in transportation, finance, manufacturing, agriculture and education. Winnipeg also lies in close proximity to hundreds of lakes, including Lake Winnipeg, Canada's fifth largest lake and the world's eleventh largest.
Winnipeg is the sunshine capital of Canada, with over 2300 hours of sun annually. Winnipeg has the second clearest skies year-round and is the second sunniest city in Canada in the winter.
Winnipeg is well known across the prairies for its arts and culture. The isolation of the city led to the development of many homegrown cultural institutions in theatre, music and dance. As the city developed, it became one of the main stops in Canada for artists as they travelled across Canada. It remains one of the top destinations today.
