If your travels take you to the South Island of New Zealand, then Christchurch must be on your itinerary. The Avon River flows through the city with a beautiful urban park situated along its shores. With the mountains in the background and the canopy overhead, it is one of the most peaceful experiences the world currently offers.

The atmosphere of Christchurch is distinctly English, with several European influences dotting the landscape. Local Maori culture is fused into this personality to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Cinema has been a strong influence in Christchurch. At one point, multiple cinemas occupied Cathedral Square, though just two remain today. Catch a film at the Hollywood in Sumner if you get the chance to enjoy a first-generation cinema.

Music is an important part of life in Christchurch as well. Live acts are consistently playing shows throughout the city all year. The Southern Opera and the local symphony orchestra should not be missed if you get the opportunity to see them during your stay. Then enjoy the many green spaces that Christchurch offers. Hagley Park was founded in 1855 and is the largest green space in the city. You’ll find a golf course, visiting live acts, and miles of walking trails to enjoy. The Christchurch Botanic Gardens, founded in 1863 are next to Hagley Park and have multiple houses, fountains, and gardens to enjoy. Be sure to linger in the Conservatory.

Christchurch brings you to the culture of New Zealand and lets you experience it in your own way. It is an amazing city that will leave an indelible mark on you.
