About St. Paul
|Satellite view showing Saint Paul (abbreviated St. Paul), seat of Ramsey County and since 1849 capital of Minnesota in the United States.
The city is located on the banks of the Mississippi River in east-central of Minnesota.
St. Paul's Central Business District is just 12 mi (19 km) away from Downtown Minneapolis.
The city was founded in the beginning of the 19th century as a tavern, it soon became a trading and transportation center near Fort Snelling and nearby historic Native American settlements.

St. Paul gained prominence in 1849 when it was named the capital of the Minnesota Territory which later became the State of Minnesota.
Minnesota's capital and Minneapolis, the largest city in the state, are known as the "Twin Cities", maybe because the original Twin Cities, Minneapolis on one bank of the Mississippi River, and Saint Anthony on the other side, have merged long time ago to form Minneapolis. Anyway, today Minneapolis and St. Paul are the core cities of the Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington metropolitan area, which is composed of 182 cities and townships, with a total population of 3.52 million people (in 2015).
St. Paul is Minnesota's second most populous city with a population of 300,000 inhabitants (2015).
