“St. John’s, our province’s capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John’s has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. It’s become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge.” – Newfoundland and Labrador
