Victoria ist die älteste Stadt von Westkanada und wurde 1843 als Handelsposten der Hudson's Bay Company gegründet. Die historischen Wurzeln von Victoria wurden sorgfältig bewahrt, wie die liebevoll instand gehaltenen historischen Stätten und Kulturdenkmäler belegen.

Besuchen Sie das historische Empress Hotel und die Regierungsgebäude im Inner Harbour und unternehmen Sie eine Tour durch die älteste Chinatown von Kanada. Auch Victorias Kathedralen und das auf einem Berg gelegene Craigdarroch Castle dürfen Sie sich auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen.

Victoria ist die „britischste“ Stadt Kanadas, überall findet man Spuren ihrer kolonialen Vergangenheit. An jeder Ecke gibt es elegante Villen im viktorianischen Stil und aus der Zeit Edwards VII., imposante Hotels und beeindruckende Architektur zu entdecken.

Von Stätten nationaler historischer Bedeutung bis hin zu Ausstellungen mit Kunst der First Nations bietet Victoria alles, was das Herz geschichtsinteressierter Besucher begehrt. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten lassen sich ohne Weiteres zu Fuß, mit einer Pferdekutsche oder auf einer Tour in einem Doppeldeckerbus im britischen Stil erreichen.
