Quebec City is located at the mouth of the St. Charles River which flows into the St. Lawrence River. It is not part of the Maritime Provinces but is a starting point for going to the
Maritimes. You can fly there and then take the train to Nova Scotia. The city was founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain and is the capital of Quebec Province. Quebec Old City has
been designated a historic monument and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. French is the main language spoken in the province and Quebec is known as "la Nouvelle France".
