Niagara means “thundering water” this name was given to this waterfall by the American Indians, also Niagara is natural border that divides Canada and America. From the Erie the river of Niagara runs calmly for about 56 kilometers, but near the lake Ontario the lake changes its shape and it is transformed in too fast and Wild River that flows towards the cataract in to dusty water and because of that on sunny day hundreds of rainbows can be seen in to the river. After that there is a magnificent waterfall where the water falls in to abyss from about 55 meters and when the water hits the bottom disappears in to wild foam and the sound is like a thunder that never stops.
The island Goat is on the edge of the cascade and splits the river in two parts. The American waterfall on the east side falls in to a straight line and it is about 300 wide. The Canadian waterfall called horseshoe is twice wider than and the same name tells that it has a shape of a horseshoe. The sight is magnificent no matter from which side you see them, but the Canadian side gives you better sight of this waterfalls. Horseshoe can be watched with a small boat that sails in to the water dust.
