Virginia is a state in the USA that is very diverse in terms of landscape. An impressive coastal landscape alternates with the Blue Ridge Mountains. There is something here for water sports enthusiasts as well as for cyclists and hikers. The most famous cities in Virginia are Norfolk, Richmond and Virginia Beach. A trip to Shenandoah National Park is particularly recommended.

The state can also look back on an eventful history. For example, the stories about the Indian princess Pocahontas, which was even filmed by Disney, are well known. The American Civil War has also left its mark here.

Virginia: geography

The U.S. state of Virginia with its capital Richmond is located on the American east coast. He also bears the nickname "Old Dominion", which means something like old dominion. During the Civil War, the northwestern parts of the state turned away and became an independent state of West Virginia. The geographic diversity is what makes the state so special.

The coastal region is characterized by the Cheasapeake Bay. This region is one of the most important nature reserves in America. The water surface of the bay is approximately 12,000 square kilometers. The Piedmont belongs to the Appalachian Mountains. The most important river in Virginia is the Potomac. It is 616 kilometers long and originates in West Virginia. Other rivers are the James River with a length of 660 kilometers and the Rappahannock River with a length of 296 kilometers.

The story of Virginia

The first English settlers came to Jamestown in 1607. Since that time, Virginia has had a special place in U.S. history. The 37-kilometer Colonial Parkway leads past the most interesting places of the colonial era.

As everywhere in America, the Indians initially lived here. In 1612 the first tobacco plant was grown and trade flourished with the help of the Indians and the settlers. It didn't take long for the tobacco shipment to be shipped to England. In 1638 it was three million pounds of tobacco. In addition to the English, there were also German settlers who founded a settlement called Germania in 1714.

Virginia is also home to many presidents. On May 15, 1776, Virginia declared independence. In the same year, on July 4th, Virginia became one of the 13 founding states of the United States. Virginia was on the Confederation side during the Civil War. The slave-free northwest of the state declared separation from the state in 1861 and remained in the Union. West Virginia became the 35th state in 1863 and incorporated into the Union in 1870 with a new constitution.

Another famous story is that of the chief daughter of Pocahontas. According to a report by Captain John Smith, Pocahontas saved him when her father tried to kill him. The Disney Studios filmed this story and made a romance between the Pocahontas and Smith. In truth, this romance is said not to have existed.
