Waterfalls in Niagara Falls

Slapovi Niagare

9.0/10

Slapovi Niagare (engleski Niagara Falls) predstavljaju niz od tri vodopada na rijeci Niagari, smještenih u istočnom dijelu Sjeverne Amerike na granici između SAD i Kanade.

Iako ne naročito visoki, slapovi Niagare predstavljaju jedne od najširih i najmoćnijih vodopada na svijetu.

Poznati su po svojoj ljepoti te služe kao popularna turistička destinacija i izvor hidroelektrične energije. Na suprotnim obalama su smješteni gradovi-blizanci Niagara Falls, New York i Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Niagara, što znaći "voda što grmi",naziv je koji su ovom moćnom slapu, koji dana tvori spektakularnu granicu između SAD-a i Kanade, nadjenuli američki Indijanci. Od jezera Erie rijeka Niagara mirno teče gotovo 56km, no u blizini jezera Ontario pretvara seu brzace koji užurbano jure prema kataraktu u magli vodene prašine i duga. potom slijedi dramatićan pad od otprilike 50metara u kojem se bujicauz grmljavinu strmoglavljuje u podivljahu pjenu kao da pada u ponor bez dna. Otok Goat, na rubu kaskade, rijeku dijeli na dva djela. Američki slapovi na istočnoj stranai tvore ravnu crtu dugu oko 300metara, a kanadski slapovi Horseshoe, (Slapovi potkove) dvostruko su duži i, kako im i ime govori, imaju oblik potkove.

Nikola Tesla imao je velike zasluge za izgradnju prve hidrocentrale na Nijagarimnim vodopadima.

There are endless picture-perfect photo opportunities along the walkway at Niagara Falls. For the best shot, get here at night to take in the light show and fireworks!

Feel free to turn on your cell phones as signal strength from U.S. cell towers will suffice, preventing roaming. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!
