The US state of Idaho is located in the northwest of the USA and borders on the states of Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

The federal stat covers an area of ​​216.632 km² – with only about 1.58 million inhabitants. The state capital is Boise with approximately 205,000 residents. The area was explored by the Lewis and Clark Expedition from 1805, and from 1866 the population increased due to gold discoveries. Idaho became the 43rd state of the United States on July 3rd, 1890. In agriculture, mainly potatoes, sugar beets, wheat and barley are grown. Industrial goods are primarily wood products, machinery, computer hardware, chemical products, paper products, silver and other mineral resources. Another important industry is tourism.
