Canada has its own Eiffel Tower so you can pretend that you're in Paris

Canada is home to its very own Eiffel Tower, and although it may not be as tall as the Parisian version, it makes a great spot for an afternoon picnic of baguettes and Brie cheese.

The Eiffel Tower of Montmartre, Sask. is an exact replica of the iconic tower in France, albeit about 1/38th of the size.

The Canadian version was completed in 2009, and it has since become a popular destination for tourists to snap a few photos.

The 28-foot Eiffel Tower replica is made of steel, and it weighs a staggering 3,600 kilograms.

A nearby sign on the gazebo tells tourists that Paris, France is approximately 6,880 kilometres away.

Montmartre, Sask. is actually twinned with Montmartre, France.

The Canadian village is affectionately known as the "Paris of the Prairies," and several of the founding families immigrated from France circa 1893.

Canada may have closed its borders to non-essential travel for the time being, but you can still get a taste of Paris closer to home.
