Niagarski slapovi

Ratings
9.6/10

Niagarski slapovi (angleško Niagara Falls) so skupina velikih slapov na reki Niagari v vzhodni Severni Ameriki, ki razmejuje Združene države Amerike in Kanado. Trije ločeni slapovi, ki sestavljajo skupino, se imenujejo:

  • Podkvasti slapovi (Horseshoe Falls; včasih tudi Kanadski slapovi)
  • Ameriški slapovi (American Falls)
  • Slapovi nevestine tančice (Bridal Veil Falls)

Slapovi nevestine tančice so najmanjši.

Niagarski slapovi sicer niso izjemno visoki, vendar so zelo široki in predstavljajo najbolj vodnate slapove Severne Amerike.

Slapovi slovijo po svoji lepoti, obenem pa so pomemben vir hidroelektrične energije in izziv pri ohranjevanju neokrnjene narave. Kot nad stoletje priljubljena turistična točka so slapovi razdeljeni nad mesti Niagara Falls v ameriški zvezni državi New York ter Niagara Falls v kanadski provinci Ontario.

Ime Niagara izhaja iz irokeške besede, ki pomeni »grmenje voda«.

Prvo hidroelektrarno na Niagari je zgradil Nikola Tesla. To je bila prva večja elektrarna, ki je proizvajala izmenični električni tok. Na otoku Goat Island (Kozji otok) sredi reke Niagara, v bližini slapov in bivše hidroelektrarne, so Američani postavili spomenik Nikoli Tesli, ki je delo hrvaškega kiparja Frana Kršinića.

Niagarski slapovi so privlačili tudi različne pustolovce in kaskaderje. Prečkali so jih po napeti vrvi, ali pa so se po slapovih spustili v sodovih.

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!

The view of both falls is better from the Canadian side. You get a good view of just rapids on the American side.

Don't miss the Aquarium of Niagara, where you can watch penguin feedings, see sea lions up close and even feed seals yourself.

The rainbow lights are a little tacky. White would be just fine.

Plan to come to Niagara Falls in the Winter! We are home to the Winter Festival of Lights, the Falls Illuminations, and the biggest New Years Eve party in Canada.
