The Mall of America is the largest shopping center in the world
in Minnesota. However, the land of 10,000 lakes also offers
untouched nature and invites you to outdoor
activities. Minnesota is part of the so-called Midwest and
extends to the Canadian border.
There are numerous bodies of
water in this region, which is why the state is also called the
"Land of 10,000 Lakes". One of them is the Upper Lake, the
largest of the five Great Lakes and the largest freshwater lake
in the world in terms of area. The state received the name
Minnesota, which means "sky colored water", from the language of
the Indian tribe of the Dakota-Sioux.
Minneapolis as the largest metropolis and St. Paul as the
capital together form the so-called twin cities. Popular
attractions include the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Stone
Arch Bridge over the Mississippi or the Cathedral of Saint Paul,
built in the style of the French Renaissance. Another highlight
is a visit to the Mall of America, which with 520 shops is the
most visited shopping center in the USA.
Car tours are recommended to explore the scenic beauties of
Minnesota. A fixed point is a trip to the huge Upper Lake. Here
are very beautiful sections of coast and one of the most
beautiful parks in the country, the Superior National Forest. In
the middle of the dense forests of the taiga, the gentle
elevations of the Sawtooth Mountains pile up and make excellent
hikes possible. Also worth a visit is the Voyageurs National
Park on the border with Canada, which offers a wild and romantic
atmosphere especially in autumn due to the colorful foliage and
canoe trips on its numerous lakes are also possible.
