Kentucky is an interesting mix between the Southern and the Midwest. It is actually cozy almost everywhere in this state, which was not easy due to its location between the southern and northern states during the civil war. The state motto calls for unity, because it is "United We Stand, Divided We Fall".

During the American Civil War, both Presidents came from Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln (USA) from Hodgenville and Jefferson Davis (CSA) from Fairview. After Kentucky separated from Virginia in 1792, it became the 15th state in the United States. As tensions between the south intensified, Kentucky tried unsuccessfully to remain neutral and was attacked by the southern states in September 1861, so that it sided with the northern states. Nevertheless, many Kentucky people also fought on the south side.

Today, Kentucky's structure and mentality make it more of a southern state. In addition to Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the state has the addition "Commonwealth of" and not the term "State". The state's nickname, however, is Bluegrass State because in spring the grass meadows are particularly formative for the landscape. The country music style popular in Kentucky is also called Bluegrass Music.

Otherwise, like no other state in Kentucky , there is a lot about horses and horse derbies. The local bourbon whiskey and of course the local cuisine with lots of chicken is also known worldwide.

North Kentucky is bordered by the Ohio River, which separates Kentucky from Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Other neighboring countries are Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Kentucky, which is surrounded by a neighboring state, is the only state in the USA with the Kentucky Bend, an exclave on the Mississippi that is only accessible from Tennessee.

Geographically, the state can be divided into several regions. The Jackson Purchase region with the deepest point of the state (78 m height) and fertile alluvial land can be found in the southwest, the mountainous and forested Eastern Coal Fields with the highest point Black Mountain (1,212 m height) are located in the east. The most famous region is the Bluegrass region, where the capital Frankfort and the city of Lexington are located. Other regions are the Cumberland Mountains and the Cumberland Plateau.

Kentucky is also strongly shaped by numerous rivers such as the Ohio River, the Mississippi, the Cumberland River, the Tennessee River, the Big Sandy River and the Kentucky River. Some lakes and numerous reservoirs also offer plenty of water. Nature conservation is very important here and so there are not only some state parks and recreation areas but also the Mammoth Cave National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The region's forests and parks are home to marmots, raccoons, deer, elk and foxes, as well as numerous bird species such as bald eagles, woodpeckers and kingfishers.

40% of the country is forested, there are maple trees, birch, oak and horse chestnut trees as well as cedar, pine and cypress. Plants such as heather berries, tulip trees, rhododendrons and mint are also common. Especially in autumn, the Kentucky landscape glows in the brightest colors, then there are extensive walks through the individual parks.

Most residents of the state descend from European settlers, mostly Germans, English or Irish. Almost 8% African-Americans and significantly fewer Latinos, Asians and indigenous peoples make up another share of the population. The largest religion is the Baptists, followed by Methodists and Catholics as well as numerous free churches. Largest cities are Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Covington and Hopkinsville.
