The capital is Saint Paul. The largest city is Minneapolis. Other major cities: Bloomington, Duluth, Rochester, Brooklyn Park.

Official nicknames are North Star State, Gopher State, Land of 10,000 Lakes, Bread and Butter State.

Geography and climate

According to itypetravel, the area of ​​Minnesota is 225.365 thousand km 2 (12th place among the states), of which 8.4% is on the water surface. In the north and northeast, Minnesota borders on the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, from which the state is separated in places by lakes Lesnoe, Superior, and others, as well as the Rainy and Pidgin rivers. Minnesota borders Wisconsin to the east, Iowa to the south, and South Dakota and North Dakota to the west.

The northern part of Minnesota is located on the crystalline Laurentian Shield, with rocky ridges and deep lakes (about 15 thousand lakes in total) connected with its outcrops. Prairies to the northwest and west. Central and southern parts of Minnesota lie on a flat plain. About a third of the territory is covered with forests. Humid temperate continental climate. There are more than 10,000 lakes in Minnesota, which is reflected in one of the state’s official nicknames.


Before the arrival of Europeans, Minnesota was inhabited by the Chippewa (Ojibwa), Dakota, and Winnebago Indian tribes.

Presumably, the first Europeans to set foot on these lands were the Vikings back in the 12th century, but their presence left few traces. In modern times, the first Europeans to explore the territory of Minnesota were the French, in particular the expeditions of Samuel de Champlain, Daniel Duluth (the city of Duluth is named after him) and Robert de Lasalle. In 1679 Duluth declared the province part of the French Empire. In 1763, the territory was transferred to Great Britain in accordance with the Treaty of Paris.

The area of ​​what is now Minnesota east of the Mississippi became part of the United States after the Revolutionary War, while another area to the west became part of the United States as a result of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.

On March 3, 1849, the Territory of Minnesota separated from Iowa, which at first included a significant part of modern North and South Dakota. May 11, 1858 Minnesota was admitted to the Union, becoming the 32nd state of the country. The state constitution was adopted in 1858.

During the Civil War, there was no fighting in Minnesota. Representatives of the state fought in the army of northerners.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the state experienced rapid economic development. In 1915, the United States Steel corporation’s steel mills were opened in Duluth. Maritime shipping also developed thanks to navigation along the St. Lawrence River.


According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the state’s GDP in 2003 was $211 billion. Minnesota is an industrial state. The twin cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul) host the headquarters of many large corporations, including 3M. The Mesabi iron ore region provides more than half of the US iron ore production.

The opening of the St. Lawrence Deep Waterway made Duluth an international seaport. Sand, gravel and stone are mined.

In the 20th century, industries such as mechanical engineering, printing, the food industry and woodworking developed, and in recent decades, the production of computer equipment.

Agriculture is also well developed in Minnesota, although farmers make up only about 2% of the population. The main agricultural crops are soybeans, corn, seeded grasses, and wheat. There is also dairy farming.
