It is a very densely populated region with a population of about a million people, and yet it is among the smallest provinces in Canada. Its capital is known as Halifax.

It has got several islands among them Sable Island, and a huge island known as Cape Breton Island. Let have a close look at the Best place to visit in Nova Scotia.
