Philadelphia is one of the oldest and largest cities in the United States, the most important economic and cultural center, which at one time played a very important role in the creation and development of the American state.

Philly, as this huge city is often called, is located on the right bank of the Delaware River in southeastern (” Dutch “) Pennsylvania, on the border between the Atlantic Lowlands and the Piedmont Plateau (known as the “fall line”). On the territory of Philadelphia, its largest tributary, the Schuylkill River (Skulkill), flows into the Delaware.

The “City of Brotherly Love” is characterized by a humid subtropical climate with relatively warm (but often with significant temperature fluctuations – from thaws to frosts and vice versa) in winter, hot and stuffy summers, mild springs and autumns. The average temperature in January ranges from -4°C to 5°C, and in July – from 21°C to 31°C. Precipitation falls fairly evenly throughout the year; In winter, the snow cover does not last long, as a rule.

More than 1,590,000 people live in Philadelphia (sixth place among US cities), while the population density exceeds 4560 people / km 2. Around Philly, the “Metropolis of the Delaware River Valley” grew up, formed by the cities of Reading (Pennsylvania), Wilmington (Delaware), Camden (New Jersey) and several others. More than six million people live in this huge urban agglomeration (the eighth largest in the United States).
