Today we are going a little south of the region of Ostend. We will come to a beautiful city inhabited by 11,257 sims. The city known as Victoria Falls is located 182 kilometers (113 miles) southeast of the city of Ostend and 67 kilometers (41.6 miles) southwest of Austral.
Located at the foot of the mountain ranges Loma Pietra, Victoria Falls is crossed by the river is south Victorica. At the center crosses the river Fell.
Founded in 1867, when the Spanish discoverer Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca has chosen to back a settlement near his latest discovery: Victoria Falls, which occur when the river falls Victorica on a cliff 69 meters high.
Is composed of nine different jumps. Seven are in the Upper Falls and the other two in the Lower Falls. To keep them, decided to create the National Park Victoria.
► Check for the sole road leading to it: the National Route 20. You can see the welcome sign carved in wood.
► Overview of the city, you can see the National Park, waterfalls and mountains
► Local airfield.
► Addition to the airfield, you can see the adjacent neighborhoods and the river crossing Fell under.
► On the other hand, at the weather, storms are common throughout the year. But in summer even more. You can see the cloud that announces the next rain.
► As it rains, the river rises. It is common on many occasions the aerodrome has to be closed because the river crossing Fell grows under the cover so that the runway and hangar flooded.
VICTORIA NATIONAL PARK
It was created in 1958 with the aim of protecting this area. Given the way the cliff, and its similarity to the Iguazu Falls between Argentina and Brazil, are called "The Iguazu of Ostend."
