The American state of Kansas is in the Midwest. It borders Nebraska to the north, Colorado to the west, Oklahoma to the south, and Missouri to the east. The capital is Topeka. Two thirds of the west of Kansas consist of prairie areas.

The state of Kansas lies in the middle of the large plains. As a typical prairie state, Kansas is still heavily agricultural with huge wheat fields and ubiquitous cattle farming. The large herds of buffalo in North America used to travel through these almost endless expanses.

Kansas is also known as the Sunflower State, which means Sunflower State. The state owes this name to its geographical location, because Kansas is located right in the middle of the USA. Accordingly, it is hot in the summer months and very cold in the winter.

The name of the state is derived from Kansa, a word in the language of the Sioux Indians, which roughly stands for "south wind people". The state slogan underlines the tenacity of the residents of Kansas and is “Ad Astra per Aspera”, freely translated from Latin: You get to the stars by effort.

Kansas: geography

Adjacent is Kansas from Colorado in the west, Nebraska in the north, in the east of Missouri and finally in the south of Oklahoma. Well-known rivers are the Kansas River, the Arkansas River, the Missouri River, the Smoky Hill River and the Republican River. The east of the state is slightly more hilly than the flatter west, which is one of the Central Plains.

The nickname of Kansas is Sunflower State. The highest mountain in Kansas is Mount Sunflower, which is named after the state name and is at least 1,231 m high. The largest cities are Wichita, Overland Park, Kansas City, the capital Topeka and Olathe.

The flat landscape with few elevations lacks a shielding effect for cold and warm air areas. Therefore, the temperatures and weather conditions can change quickly and drastic differences emerge. This also enables the high incidence of tornadoes, which have a destructive effect throughout the Tornado Alley to which Kansas belongs (only Oklahoma and Florida have statistically more tornadoes).

Greensburg (Kiowa County) in southern Kansas fell victim to an F5-strength tornado in 2007, destroying 95% of the town's houses.

The state is sparsely populated. Most of the residents come from immigrants who came mainly from Germany. The well-known rivers are Kansas River, Arkansas River, Smoky Hill River, Missouri River and Republican River. Due to the geographical location, there is less rainfall here. Only in the east does it rain more often. Since there are hardly any surveys to be found here, the weather can change quickly. This is also evident from the frequency of tornadoes. One of the largest cities in Kansas is Wichita. Kansas is best known for its prairies. First the Indians lived here, then the cowboys. The “Flint Hills” are particularly well known, a lush and green prairie landscape that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

The highest mountain is the Sunflower. The largest cities are Kansas City, Overland Park, Wichita, Olathe and Topeka. There is a constant wind in Kansas. Also typical are the many stars in the sky that attract many stargazers.
