Regina

Regina is the capital of Saskatchewan, Canada, making it the seat of the provincial Crown. The city is the second largest in the province (after Saskatoon), and is a cultural and commercial metropole for both southern Saskatchewan and adjacent areas in the neighbouring American states of North Dakota and Montana. It attracts visitors for the vitality of its commerce, theatre, concerts and restaurants and to its summer agricultural exhibition. Its rich cultural life in music, theatre and dance is supported by the University of Regina, which has faculties of music, theatre and plastic arts.

Regina, situated on a broad, flat, treeless plain, has a substantial proportion of its overall area dedicated as parks and greenspaces, with biking paths, cross-country skiing venues and other recreational facilities throughout the city; Wascana Lake, the venue for summer boating activities, is regularly cleared of snow in winter for skating. Attractions for visitors in Regina include the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Legislative Building, Holy Rosary Cathedral, the Casino, Globe Theatre, Saskatchewan Centre of the Arts and much more.

The farm and agricultural component is still a significant part of the economy — the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, "the world's largest grain-handling co-operative" has its headquarters in Regina — but it is no longer the major driver.
