If you like history, and friendly people, then you will love Nova Scotia. The influences of our Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African, Celtic and Gaelic people give us a unique culture.
Our history includes the world renowned Bluenose schooner, the most advanced ship building experts in Canada, history changing battles, the Halifax Explosion which was the largest man made explosion until the Nuclear Bomb, over one million immigrants landed in Halifax at Pier 21 and one hundred and fifty Titanic victims are buried in Halifax. And the history doesn’t stop there.
Our rugged and beautiful coastline, and a little over 3800 islands, makes us a photographer’s dream. Nova Scotia has 5 UNESCO sites, 3 World Heritage Sites, 1 Canadian Museum of Immigration, 12 National Historic Site attractions and 28 Provincial museums and interpretive centres that emphasize our diverse history.
