Useful links for visiting Montana

Mountainous Montana is famous for its lakes, geysers, and scenic landscapes of incredible beauty. You will not find big cities with modern skyscrapers here. The entire state is an ideal destination for ecotourism enthusiasts to hike, horse ride, fish, mountain bike, raft, rock climb, and, in general, explore the wildlife of the national forests.

The symbols of Montana are the bitterroot, the grizzly bear, the ponderosa pine, and the western meadowlark. The state has two World Heritage Sites: Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park.

Montana is the 41st state of the United States, admitted to the Union in 1889. Before this, it was under the rule of Britain and France at various times. Its capital is Helena, the largest city – Billings, nicknamed "The Magic City" due to its rapid growth as a railroad town at the end of the 19th century. Other major cities: Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman.
