What do you remember first when you hear about the United States of America? Warm sunny California? Surfing and beaches? What about Alaska? This is also one of the states, but it is very different from the rest 49. Despite this, many tourists visit Alaska. They come from all over the world. But if you decide to visit Alaska, prepare warm clothes. Twenty degrees below zero is the normal temperature for this state. Tourists often come to Alaska to have an active holiday. They conquer the mountain peaks, ski or go dog sledding. The first people who lived in this state were Eskimos. Today they make up about fifteen percent of the population. In the nineteenth century, Alaska was a part of Russia. The Americans bought it for a huge amount of seven million dollars. After that they found gold there.
