Nova Scotia

  • Halifax
  • Celtic origins
  • 920.000 inhabitants
  • Sinking of the Titanic

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia is known for the enormous influence of the sea on its people, and is considered one of the friendliest places on Earth thanks to the friendliness and sense of humour of its inhabitants.

It is a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean between bays and estuaries. The territory is organized in ten counties, with Halifax as its capital and a big British influence. The main origins of the population include Scottish, English, Irish, French and Aboriginal and Celtic and Welsh traditions survive.

It has managed to attract a significant portion of the tourism received by Canada, promoting its wonderful epic story fraught with great sea battles, some of which have even make an appearance in current video games. It is an open window to Canada's past and its European origins. The Titanic is well remembered there as Halifax was the closest city to the wreck and some of the victims were buried in three cemeteries of the province.
