A bit of history

Before the advent of Europeans in the territory of the future America, this peninsula was inhabited by Indians, but on April 2, 1513, at the height of the bloom of all life on the island, the Spanish conquistador with the beautiful name Juan Ponce De Leon arrived by ship in these lands. In 1564, the first settlement appeared in Florida - St. Augustine. Florida withdrew to Great Britain under the Paris Peace Treaty in 1763 in exchange for Havana, but as a result of the American struggle, independence returned to Spain.

In the 18th century, the violent tribes of Muskogee and Yemassi (Indian tribes) made several crushing attacks on the orange state, for which they were relocated to a reservation in Oklahoma. In 1821, according to the agreement of Adams - Onnis, Florida came under the jurisdiction of the United States, and in 1845 became the 27th US state.

Where does the name of Florida come from?

Arriving in 1513 in these lands, admiring the beauty of Florida, Juan Ponce De Leon gave her the name “la tierra florida”, which translates from his language as “the land of flowers” or “the land that blooms”. So the state got its name. Now the state has got several names: “Mocking bird state”, “Sunny state”, “State of flowers”, “Evergreen state” “State of alligators” and “Orange state”. The abbreviation of this beautiful state is FL.

Climatic conditions in Florida

The climate in Florida is mostly mild, subtropical, on the coast is tropical. It is the climatic conditions that attract the greatest mass of tourists and are considered the most valuable resource of the state. In summer, the temperature in Florida is usually as comfortable as possible - from 26 to 28 degrees, it can reach 35 on particularly hot days, but most tourists visit the state during the winter period - in winter it is one of the warmest points of the continent, the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees.

The air is humid and mild, but in the summer in Florida there are often devastating hurricanes and heavy rains. The rainy season lasts from the beginning of August to the end of October. Thanks to the ideal climate in Florida, there are a lot of extremely beautiful plants and rare animals, dolphins, whales and manatees are found in the ocean, and on land there are more than 250 rare species of beautiful butterflies, otters, minks, raccoons, deer and foxes.

Who inhabits the sunny state

Since 1920, the state took the place of honor among the fastest growing states in the country. The population has since increased by more than 13 times.

Florida is a multinational state, about 20 million whites, African Americans, Latin Americans, Asians and Indians who have survived from the arrival of Europeans live here in peace and harmony.

In the central and northern sides of Florida, the main occupation of the inhabitants is agriculture, but the spacious part of the peninsula in the south can be said to be uninhabited. The most widespread religion in Florida is Catholic Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and Orthodoxy also profess here, but on a much smaller scale.
