Over 11,000 lakes, majestic forests, romantically beautiful cities and Arctic winters characterize the US state of Minnesota. The “North Star State” in the north of the USA invites you on a journey that you will not forget anymore.
Minnesota is nicknamed “The Land of 10,000 Lakes” for a reason. With its 18,981 km2 of water surface, the cool northern state has made it into the top 10 of the most water-rich US states. The legendary Mississippi River also originates here. The city life, for example in the vibrant metropolis of Minneapolis or the Victorian-influenced Saint Paul, can also really be seen in Minnesota.
Minnesota is located on the border with Canada and is the northernmost state of the USA after Alaska. In addition to the long “North Shore” coastline on the great Lake Superior, which forms the border with Michigan, Minnesota also borders Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
More than any other US state, Minnesota is known for educated, polite and politically engaged citizens. About 96% of Minnesota residents are American citizens, about 9% of them were born outside the United States.
Minneapolis and Saint Paul are home to the largest Hmong and Somali groups in the United States. In addition, a large part of the “Minnesotans” are of Scandinavian, German and Mexican descent.
