As soon as they do not call Nebraska SVG: the state of antelope, and the state of planting trees, and the state of black water, and even the state of feeding on grasshoppers! We advise not to be guided by the name, the main thing, why should we go to Nebraska, is the nature and high level of culture of its small towns.
Nebraska SVG is located in the Midwest of the United States and belongs to the Northwest Central States of the United States. The territory of Nebraska is 200 520 km2 (the sixteenth place among the states of the USA).
Nebraska borders the states of South Dakota in the north, Iowa in the east, Missouri in the south-east, Kansas in the south, Colorado in the south-west and Wyoming in the west.
Nebraska is located in two U.S. time zones: central (eastern districts) and mountainous (western districts).
Nebraska SVG is characterized by a relatively flat terrain, the state is fully located in the Great Plains of the United States. The eastern districts of Nebraska are located in the zone of the so-called “dissected plains”, which are formed by glaciers of gentle hills. To the west, the terrain is gradually rising to a height of 1,653 meters above sea level at the highest point of the state, Panorama Point, located in the southwest of Nebraska, near the border with Colorado and Wyoming. In the north of the state, there is a vast region of grass-covered sandy hills called Sandhills.
Nebraska’s plains used to be grassed prairies for bison herds, but now a significant portion of the state is used for agriculture. In Nebraska, there are only small areas of steppe not affected by human activity, many of which today have the status of protected areas.
In the plains of Nebraska SVG there are “remains” – rock formations, peculiar “stone pillars”, which survived after the destruction of rock masses. Some of them served as landmarks for the migrants traveling west along the Oregon Trail in the 19th century and thus became part of Nebraska’s history.
Among the most famous rock massifs of Nebraska is the National Historical Monument of the USA Chimney Rock (the “Chimney Rock”). The height of the rock above the surrounding valley is more than ninety meters, and above sea level – 1,288 meters. Earlier this unusual “stone spire” was even higher, but wind erosion and frequent lightning strikes gradually destroy it. Also well known and popular with tourists is the Scotts-Bluff National Monument – five cliffs towering above the prairie by more than three hundred and thirty meters.
The main cultural attractions of Nebraska are, of course, in the cities of Omaha and Lincoln. But the nature of the state deserves special attention, because in Nebraska there are several national parks: the Rock of Chimney, the Valley of the Nayobrar, Gomsted and Aegean deposits of fossils.
