Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada:
Frozen in Time

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

Once more into the fiddle.

It is a grey and somewhat foreboding day here in Sydney, hinting at the winter around the corner. But they don’t let that get in the way of a good party, around here often called a ceilidh or barn dance.

In fact, Cape Breton is in the midst of its annual Celtic Colours Festival.

SYDNEY

Sydney is the less-known port of Nova Scotia, although it played a major role in World War I and World War II as the port of dispatch for Atlantic convoys.

The coal fields and the steel mills are gone, and the port and town are much sleepier now.

Sydney in the fall can be one of the prettiest places in the Canadian Maritimes.

The restored fortress of Louisbourg is one of Canada’s best historical recreations, especially when there is a hint of cold winter in the air.
