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!
