Originally a tent village called 'Pile o’ Bones', the bustling and friendly town of Regina was renamed for Queen Victoria.

The city’s modern central business district is gleaming, modern and high-rise but contrasts with a vast central park, set around a lake.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Regina is the original headquarters for the North West Mounted Police, the precursor to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, affectionately known as 'Mounties': the RCMP Centennial Museum is fascinating and you can still see cadets parade, with a ritual Sunset Retreat Ceremony taking place on every Tuesday throughout the summer months.

The interpretive center tells the story of their creation to combat the lawlessness of the west’s whiskey traders. Another highlight is the Royal Saskatchewan Museum which focuses on the local First Nations’ history.
