The state of Vermont, located in New England in the Northeastern United States, is one of the smallest states, both in terms of area and population. It borders Canada (with the province of Quebec) to the north; with the states of New Hampshire to the east, Massachusetts to the south, and New York to the west.

Densely forested Green Mountains stretch across the state from north to south – one of the ranges of the Appalachian mountain system. It was in honor of the picturesque mountain landscape that the state of Vermont got its name, because the first Europeans in Vermont were French explorers, and the English word “Vermont” (Vermont) comes from the French vert mont, which means “green mountain”.

Vermont is located in a zone of humid continental climate, milder in the northwest (in the valley of Lake Champlain) and much more severe in the northeast. In general, the state is characterized by warm, humid summers, during which the main amount of precipitation falls, and frosty, snowy winters.

In the history of the United States, Vermont is known, among other things, for the uprising of the Green Mountain Boys, who captured the British fort of Ticonderoga in 1775. The Vermont Constitution, adopted in 1777, was the first in America to prohibit slavery, provide for suffrage for all men, and establish public schools. After the Revolutionary War, the Republic of Vermont existed as a sovereign state for fourteen years and only became part of the United States on March 4, 1791 (becoming the first state admitted to the Union after the thirteen founding colonies).

Vermont’s largest city, Burlington, has fewer than 50,000 residents, while the capital, Montpelier, has fewer than 10,000 residents (it’s the smallest city of any US state capital ).

The economy of Vermont is based on mining (primarily rocks – granite and marble); agriculture (dairy farming is well developed here), industry and tourism.
