A Quick Guide Around Edmonton

  • West Edmonton Mall: Partake in a bit of retail therapy at North America’s largest mall. Spanning over 490,000 meters, with over 800 stores and services, you could literally get lost in this shopping center. With over 32 million annual visitors, there are plenty of amenities and attractions to experience other than the stores, including restaurants, cafes, theme parks, a water park, a miniature golf course, four movie theatre complexes, an entertainment center, and an indoor skating rink!

  • Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village: Odd as it may seem, Edmonton is in fact, home to a huge Ukrainian population. This open-air museum is a provincial historic site that serves a slice of the history and culture of the Slavic motherland. With over 30 historic buildings, gardens, and monuments, the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village paints a vivid picture of the lives and times of the original settlers between 1899 and 1930. With traditional costumes on show and carrying out old-fashioned activities such as tending gardens and baking bread, the workers within the village contribute to creating detailed, realistic, and educational scenes.

  • Fort Edmonton Park: Visit the largest living history museum in Canada in the form of Fort Edmonton. With historical structures that transport you back to the early days of Edmonton, and costumed historical interpreters, Fort Edmonton Park takes you on a journey through the history of the city, from the times of post-horse indigenous people to the end of the First World War. Interactive and informative, Fort Edmonton Park is a perfect place to have fun and learn something you didn’t know before.
