Let me invite you to the exciting journey! We are going to visit different cities in the United States of America. I’ll tell you about New York, Washington DC, Boston, Miami and some other cities. Proem The USA is situated in the central part of the North American continent. The area of this country is over 9 million square kilometers. The population of the USA is more than 300 million people. Most of the people live in cities and towns. New York Let’s visit New York first! It’s the largest city and port and one of the biggest cities in the world. Travellers who visit New York for the first time wonder its luxury. It’s the financial and business center of America. Streets of New York The streets of New York are bright and colorful. There are two more world-famous streets – Broadway and Fifth Avenue. It is the city that never goes to sleep. Brooklyn Bridge I think you’ll be impressed by the Brooklyn Bridge by all means. The construction of this bridge is great and monumental. Though it’s one of the oldest bridges in the USA all the visitors think it to be the remarkable place in the country. Washington The capital of the USA is Washington, in the District of Columbia. Washington is a beautiful administrative city without much industry. Washington always has a lot of tourists who come from different parts of the world. They want to see the Lincoln Memorial, the White House and the Capitol. Capitol and the White House The Capitol is the seat of the USA Congress in Washington, D.C. The White House is the official residence of the USA president. Washington Attractions The Lincoln Memorial is a memorial built to honor the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. The proportions of the statue are colossal. It is almost 6 meters high and 175 tons weight. Monument to war veterans Not far from the Lincoln Memorial there are Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and National World War II Memorial. You can see some statues of soldiers and the wall where some events of the war are shown. The Wall is unusual because the figures of soldiers look rather alive. Americans-lovers of contemporary art Many people in the USA show interests in culture and art that’s why they like to visit theatres, museums and art galleries. Americans are fond of modern art. You can see unusual sculptures everywhere. They admire these sculptures. Miami Miami is an “island of luxury” because everything is very expensive there. Miami is a center for television and film production. You can see beautiful beaches and hotels, cafes and restaurants. Let’s see Madonna’s café with its unusual collection of masks. Boston Boston is one of the oldest cities in the USA. Many colleges and universities make this city an international centre of higher education and medicine. There are a lot of sky-scrapes in Boston. Harvard Museum The Harvard Museum of Natural History is a natural history museum. In the museum’s galleries visitors can observe the diversity of life on earth, from dinosaurs to reptiles, birds, fish and animals. Air and Space Museum The National Air and Space Museum maintains the world's largest and most significant collection of aviation and space artifacts. The strangest thing is that some artifacts are originally Russian. Christmas tree The National Christmas Tree is a large tree located near the White House in Washington. What a pity that it's only a virtual tour. I would like to visit these wonderful places and see everything with my own eyes. В данной презентации были использованы фотографии из семейного архива.
