St. Paul - USA

St. Paul Minnesota

Population: City - 284,037
Metro - 3,365,573
53 sq mi

St. Paul is the capital of Minnesota and sits on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The smaller twin in the "Twin Cities" moniker, the larger twin, Minneapolis, borders St. Paul on the west. The city is also the seat of Ramsey County, the smallest in the state of Minnesota. St. Paul's original name was Pig's Eye Landing until 1841 when it was renamed by French priest Reverend Lucien Galtier after his favorite saint. In 1849, Minnesota was recognized as a territory and St. Paul was recognized as its capital. In 1854, St. Paul was officially incorporated as a city.

Be honest










The tour continues here!!!

Exactly!!

Minneapolis is glassy and modern whereas St. Paul is much more historic and short. You really can't compare the 2 because they differ so much. I live in St. Paul so I'm a tad partial to it.

St.Paul, last of the eastern cities...Minneapolis first of the western cities. I love 'em both. They complement each other nicely.

I give it a 8.5 because it and Minneapolis only are a area that would seem to only support 1 major downtown areaor 1 major and other smaller but Minneapolis St. Paul both have major areas so its a very nice skyline

I used to prefer it to the skyline of Minneapolis. That was before Minneapolis grew up. It is still a fine skyline for a city of its size that has height limitations.

I love the St. Paul Companies building; I only wish it were taller. The Minnesota State Capitol is probably the best in the nation.
