It is located on the Potomac river in the district of Columbia. The city is named after the first President of America George Washington. It is interesting that Americans never say just "Washington" but always add "DC”. The Capitol Washington has many historical places. The biggest and the tallest building in Washington is the Capitol, where the Congress of the United States. This is a very beautiful building with white columns. The building reflects all the victories and defeats, the struggle for democracy and freedom. The Capitol The Capitol in Satem who have already visited to Washington in the Italian capital, Rome, once it becomes clear that the Dome of the Capitol in Washington is very much like the Dome of St. Peter. Americans do not hide the fact that this magnificent Roman dome became the prototype for the dome of the Capitol. The Library of Congress Not far from the Capitol is the Library of Congress. Here is 5the library of Congress — National Library of USA, the largest library in the world. It’s the scientific library of the U.S. Congress, serving government agencies, research institutions, researchers, private firms and industrial companies, schools. The Washington Memorial A few meters from the Capitol is the Washington monument, which looks like a very big pencil. It rises 160 metres and is hollow inside. A special lift brings visitors to the top in 70 seconds, and they can enjoy the view of the city. The Pentagon This is the Pentagon, the seat of the Ministry of defense. There are planning various military operations - ranging from conflicts in the cities, ending armed conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan, Ukraine. There are planning security for U.S. citizens. The Jefferson Memorial The Jefferson Memorial was built in memory of the third President, Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence. The manufacture of construction of the Memorial began on 15 December 1938; the first Foundation stone was laid on 15 November 1939 by President Franklin Roosevelt. The Jefferson Memorial The Memorial was inaugurated by President Roosevelt on 13 April 1943, 200-th anniversary of the birth of Jefferson. At this time, the statue was not yet finished, it was finally established only in 1947. Memorial entered in the national register of historic places October 15, 1966. The Lincoln Memorial The Lincoln Memorial is dedicated to the memory of the sixteenth President, which gave freedom to Negro slaves in America. Composite building symbolizes the Union. Around the perimeter are 36 columns — so much of the United States at the time of death of Lincoln. The Lincoln Memorial In the center of the memorial is a statue of Lincoln created by Daniel Chester French, who used photographs by Matthew Brady and portrayed a sitting President with a thoughtful face, a look which turned to the Washington monument and the Capitol. The National Museum of Air and Space It is one of the most fascinating and favourite places of Americans and tourists. Here are collected the most extensive collection of spacecraft and aircraft, and almost all the displays are original copies and some are the exact copy of the analogue. At the entrance lies the real moon rock. The National Museum of Natural History It is located in the capital, on the Main alley of Washington and is included in the complex of the Smithsonian Institution. The collection began to gather in 1846, and the official opening occurred in March 1910. Today in the collections contains 127 million different artifacts. The National Archive The National Archives is a kind of "memory" of the country. Here are stored the great and important state documents in the form of a unique exhibition. Collection of the Archive has the originals of the Declaration of independence, “Bill of rights", the U.S. Constitution and others. The National Archive But unfortunately for visitors, it exhibits no opportunity to touch, and to read them can be difficult due to special lighting, which prevents damage to the exhibits. However, to come here and see with your own eyes the famous documents is not only very informative, but also fun. My opinion I think, that this city is very important for the country because it is the center of political and economic life of the United States.
