Overall rating: 7

Pennsylvania, USA, has a total area of 119,283 sq km. Its capital is Harrisburg and the population is about 12,821,000.

Located in the Middle Atlantic Region of the United States of America, the state of Pennsylvania is also referred to as the Keystone State, as it acts as a geographical bridge between the North-eastern and Southern States and between the Atlantic Seaboard and the Midwest. At 979 m, Mount Davis is the highest point in the region.

The Amish are an important part of Pennsylvanian culture. They are a religious settlement who reside in 22 other states of the US and are also found in Canada. Though most Amish are Pennsylvanian Dutch, not all Pennsylvanian Dutch are Amish.
