    Lifelong resident of western PA here. It is very beautiful in most of the state. Pretty much all of the state is mountainous or rolling foothills. There is no shortage of forested areas. The Allegheny national forest is one of my favorite places ever and has so much hiking and camping opportunities.

    The map is done by someone with a "I looked at google images for a few minutes and yeah this is probably right".

    Norway is probably closer to Montana or Alaska
    Finland is much closer to Alaska, but Russia is that because ????
    >Sweden
    >Maine
    Confirmed for "went to boston and it's close enough, only ever went to stockholm so probably right".
    Spain would be closer to Arizona or New Mexico
    The amount of "it's just california" is fricking moronic, turkey is far closer to what New Mexico or Arizona as well. Oh but I guess it has a coast so that negates everything else about it.

    >Missouri that far north
    Try Michigan for those
    >Netherlands and Denmark
    >IOWA
    Try Rhode Island or Mass.

    >poland
    >kentucky
    Idaho, since the people hate everyone else around them and the landscape is somewhat similar.

      We don’t “hate everyone around” us, we hate Russia and some hate Germans. Both for good reasons. No one hates Czechs, Slovaks, Lithuanians, Scandinavians. Small minority hates Ukrainians for Wolyn, majority sympathises with them due to war.

      I would suggest Russia is Alaska for two main reasons—for one, Alaska is very nearly contiguous with Far Eastern Russia. So there is a substantial portion of the terrains of each territory that is literally the same thing. It’s true also, of course, that Finland is literally contiguous with Russia and a chunk of Russian Karelia is historically and ethnically Finnish. But the second salient point would be that Finland hasn’t got any mountains (also a disqualifier for resembling VT IMO), while Russia and Alaska have some big ones.

      Finland is more like Minnesota than it is like either VT or AK from my perspective, in that it’s flat and full of lakes. But perhaps the flora isn’t a good match.

        Finland is way more like AK if you factor in the people aspect.

          I don’t know many Alaskans, and the few I do know are probably not representative. One’s an Alaska Native (Tlingit) and a chef, a very nice guy, soft-spoken but actually very outgoing; his wife is a bit of a nerd, perhaps slightly high-strung… but they’re both from Anchorage and are sort of urbane in their tastes, so presumably quite unlike people going out of their way to be isolated in the frozen bush. I know a slightly larger sample of Finns and apart from most of my Finnish friends being rather soft-spoken don’t feel like they’re very similar. But maybe all the Finns I know are atypical, too. Probably worth noting that the Finns I know, apart from one, don’t actually choose to live in Finland.

          So I guess I’ll take your word for it even if I don’t see it myself.

          >Is Pennsylvania as beautiful as Germany bros?
          Parts of PA are pretty, absolutely. But is Germany really especially beautiful to you? Apart from one pretty large (for Europe) forest and some mountains it seems like a pretty generic Central Euro landscape for the most part… not better-looking than neighboring countries in any way I can think of. There’s more forest cover even just in France, and more dramatic mountain and river valley landscapes in either Italy or Switzerland IMO.

        You’re just an /in/cel and haven’t been to either place. Interior Alaska is a bit like Siberia, but coastal alaska is much more like norway in some areas or coastal finland in anothers.

          >You’re just an /in/cel and haven’t been to either place.
          I don’t know what an /in/cel is—someone who is not an outdoorsman? I’ll cop to that without shame. And I admit that I don’t know Alaska. I visited friends in Anchorage once, and that’s it. But I know Russia and Finland moderately well, particularly where they meet; I spent a full six weeks based in Petrozavodsk, capital of Russian Karelia, and I’ve been to a bunch of towns and cities in both countries. Not too much time in the backwoods in either except for some short fishing trips (as I think you suggested earlier, I’m not particularly outdoorsy), but I’ve been through diverse parts of both.
          >Interior Alaska is a bit like Siberia,
          Based on photos I’ve seen of Alaska and visits to Siberia, this isn’t surprising. It makes basic geological and geographic sense.
          >but coastal alaska is much more like norway in some areas or coastal finland in anothers.
          OK. As I said, I don’t really know Alaska at all. But there are a lot of coastal regions in Russia that look like Norway and Finland, too, albeit with a much more primitive approach to industrialization and a lot more poverty. Arkhangelsk and the White Sea coast look totally Nordic in terms of geography and climate, if not architecture, wealth, or industrial modernity.

          Anyway, I wasn’t personally trying to argue in favor of Russia being more like Alaska than it is like any other country, I was just explaining why I thought these poll respondents might think so. I don’t care. This whole thread is sort of silly.

    So I grew up in PA and have been to Germany I think I’m qualified to answer. PA has some pretty spots in rural areas and places with lots of trees in a sort of sleepy quaint but not majestic way. PA also has some of the ugliest environments on earth, it is home of the Breezewood PA meme and contrary to what seething America loving homosexuals with fat wives on this board will say, that is an accurate depiction of what it looks like and what a lot of it looks like. Most people live in meme tier souless McMansions near soulless strip malls, but there are pretty older neighborhoods in places and some decent old architecture in some of the cities, though they have lots of junky zombies (Philly specifically) and old crumbling industrial shit that looks like it’s out of a Fallout game surrounding them. Fallout even had a DLC set in Pittsburgh. The most common weather is for the sky to be grey and there to be this gross mist that isn’t quite rain. It’s usually just cold enough you need to wear a coat, but just hot enough that you will sweat under it. As for the comparison to Germany, I would say Germany mogs PA in basically every way, there is nothing in America that even comes close to what Germany is. This is true of Europe vs. America in general. Europe is basically better and mogs America in every way, the only exception would be probably places like the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, etc.

        Pennsylvania has quite a lot of rundown post-industrial towns. In fact, this is how you’d define some of the state’s biggest settlements. There are agricultural communities particularly in the Southeast and Central parts of the state, but the rest of it sprouted up from industrialization and never had agricultural roots. These cities and towns came out of the coal and steel industries, then survived on manufacturing and logistics. Once all that went away, these cities had nothing and still had nothing. The fracking boom did very little for any one place besides maybe Pittsburgh. So Pennsylvania has a lot of these places. In fact, almost every city in the state can be characterized that way.

          I'm a lifelong PA resident. don't lecture me.

          90% of the state by area is forest or mountains. or farmland. yes there are run down areas but people make it sound like its the whole state. i dont know why the frick they do this, to seem cool? it's weird. Not all cities are like that. Hermitage, PA for instance is very nice because the people in charge of it in the 80s and 90s weren't fricktards that let things decline and now it is a somewhat wealthy area that looks as nice as cities anywhere in the US.

          What people are going out of their way to overemphasize are PARTS of some cities.

          I don't know why people from Pittsburgh/Western PA have this strange obsessive love for their shithole. They always lose their shit and shitpost with copes about how they don't really live in a shithole. There's a reason why Pittsburgh has the most bars per capita along with being one of the epicenters of the opioid crisis.
          What's really weird with them, as when I lived there, everyone was content with the mediocrity and decay. It's quite depressing because there is a lot of industrial decay and the lack of sunshine. Nobody would ever take care of their house by putting on a new coat of paint. The locals there have this weird Stockholm syndrome that it's wrapped with some white identarian shit to further their cope.

      NW PA resident here, and can confirm everything my fellow said here is true
      Would like to mention the neverending bad habit of PA cities only putting patches of sidewalks down in lengthy suburban areas and leaving the rest grass or mud because the cities never finish them
      Would also like to mention our hellscape of a state highway system
      Would also like to mention the shoddy-designed ugly houses you see in an average neighborhood in my neck of the woods
      Or how a lot of the really nice rows of old Victorian and Italianate houses got turned into big tenements for drug addicts and morons
      Most of PA is very boomer and getting more dilapidated every few years. Having cool forests to ATV through just to get away from it all is a plus because if we didn't have them we'd go crazy looking at all the rundown shit
      Also if anyone expects to come here and think they are going to see anything looking German as far as the whole feel of it sorry to say they are in for a letdown
