The US state is known for the Kentucky Derby, is home to the
most extensive cave in the world and is the country of origin of
the famous Jim Beam whiskey. The so-called Bluegrass State
Kentucky is located in the southeastern United States and is
culturally one of the southern states. The former part of
Virginia is best known for its horse breeding and whiskey, such
as Jim Beam. The landscape is characterized by wide fields as
well as dense forests and mountains. Kentucky is slightly larger
than Austria and has about four million inhabitants.
The largest city in Kentucky is Louisville. The metropolis on
the Ohio River is particularly impressive due to its impressive
skyline. The many Victorian-style buildings also give the city a
special charm. Louisville is also home to the Kentucky Derby,
which is considered to be the most famous horse race in the
world. The capital of Kentucky is Frankfort and also worth a
visit. A visit to the State Capitol and the whiskey distillery
Wild Turkey Distillery is recommended. However, Kentucky also
has numerous scenic beauties. The Red River Gorge is
particularly popular. This canyon offers visitors impressive
views and gorges in the middle of a dense forest. There are also
numerous waterfalls to admire here. Because of the many
sandstone cliffs, the region is particularly popular with
climbers. The Mammoth Cave National Park, a UNESCO World
Heritage Site in the center of the state, is also worth a
visit. The cave there is the largest in the world with an
extension of 627 kilometers. The many different limestone cave
formations are particularly impressive.
