Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta in western Canada. The Calgary Tower, which rises over 600 feet above downtown Calgary, is the most obvious landmark. The city is also famous as the venue for the 1988 Winter Olympics and the Canada Olympic Park is now a recreational centre for winter sports.

Whether your trip to Calgary is to see the spectacular Rocky Mountains, to throw lassoes on the Cowboy trail, or to get absorbed in history, visitors here will be captivated...

The city is the gateway not only to Alberta's Rocky Mountains, but also the four towns - Black Diamond, Turner Valley, Longview and Millarville - that form the so-called Cowboy Trail. Indeed, 2012 also marks the centenary of the Calgary Stampede, a rodeo, exhibition and festival held annually which attracts more than a million visitors over a 10-day period in early July.

Of course, Calgary is not only about cowboys and ranching. The city offers something for all ages and interests. Children, for example, will love Calgary Zoo, which features native North American species and exotic species from further afield. Calgary Zoo is open all year round. The Calgary TELUS World of Science has interactive displays and a range of activities, programmes and workshops specifically designed for younger visitors. Last but not least, the award-winning Calaway Park, the largest amusement park in western Canada, is a must for all families.

Anyone interested in history is also amply catered for. Fort Calgary today houses a museum chronicling the development of the city, while the Glenbow Museum is the largest museum in western Canada. For those who like to get up close and personal with history, Heritage Park Village offers a chance to meet friendly pioneers from the Old West, see how they lived and ride on an authentic steam train from the period.

For those with a liking for the great outdoors, Fish Creek Provincial Park in south Calgary is a nature reserve but also features many trails for cycling, hiking and walking. Other attractions in Calgary include Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, which features numerous galleries, creatively titled Ride, Motion, Contact, Bounce and so on, filled with interactive exhibits. Construction of Calgary's National Music Centre, which will house a live music venue, recording studios and a museum, is due to start in the autumn of 2012 and be completed by 2015. Similarly, the tallest skyscraper outside Toronto, known as The Bow, in downtown Calgary is expected to receive its final occupants by the end of 2012.
