Louisville is located in the northern part of Kentucky and is the largest city in this state. Louisville is located in the vicinity of the border with the state of Indiana. The Ohio River forms the natural border between these two states. A large number of bourbon distilleries can be found in the city, about one third of all the bourbon comes from Louisville. Just outside the city Fort Knox can be found. This Fort is well known because it holds the largest amount of the Nationís gold supply. Louisville is internationally known for the Kentucky Derby. Louisville has a warm maritime climate with characteristics of a warm continental climate, the city is located in an area where these two climate types change into each other. During the winter longer periods with subzero temperatures are not uncommon. During the summer temperatures may rise up to 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) or even higher. Precipitation is quite evenly spread out over the year. Louisville is located in Tornado Alley, so there is a risk of tornadoes here.
