State description

The state of Virginia is often called “little Ireland in the USA”. It refers not only to the ethnic composition of the local population but also to the vast areas of green meadows and hills, many calm rivers and a large number of quiet villages among the hills, where all life bears the imprint of the era of European settlement of the continent. Virginia stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Blue Mountain Range and the Alleghanies. It is one of the most historic states in the country, the capital of the Confederacy, the site of many events and the birthplace of the nation as such (as the Americans themselves believe).

The state is also known as the birthplace of presidents. On this land, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and five other American presidents were born.

The capital of the state is the city of Richmond, and major cities-tourist centers of the state also include Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Alexandria.
