Montreal’s Underground City

Underground City 2When you’re in Montreal you’ll soon start asking: “Where are all the people? This city is quite big, yet the streets are empty?” While trying to find out why you’ll soon notice strange tunnels leaving the metro stations. There you already have your answer: it’s the Underground City, one of the largest underground/indoor complexes in the world, connecting the metro system with hotels, train stations, shopping malls and other points of interest.

Teddy quickly felt comfortable, because it is a convenient escape from the cold weather while still walking huge distances between sights. Underground City is definitely worth visiting, because it’s part of the city’s lifestyle: you actually see more people walking those tunnels than walking the streets. At the big entrances you have dedicated information points where you can get a map to find your ways around the tunnel system.
