Seward (Anchorage) / Alaska (USA)
Seward is a city of approximately 2,900 inhabitants, located at Resurrection Bay in the US state of Alaska. It received its name in honor of William H. Seward, former Secretary of State under Abraham Lincoln.
One of the main attractions of Seward is undoubtedly the Kenai Fjords National Park with its Harding Icefield, the largest ice field in the United States. Two historic routes begin interestingly in Seward. Every year in March the Iditarod starts from here with a distance of more than 1,850 kilometers, the longest sled dog race in the world. Also the main distance of the famous Alaska Railroad to Fairbanks begins in the city. Seward is also known for its traditional run, the mount marathon, that leads every year on July 4 on a hill overlooking the city.
