Washington DC

About the city

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States. Located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. The White House, symbolically the most important building of the country, is where US Presidents have lived and worked for more than 200 years. Dominating the Washington DC skyline stands the Washington Monument. It is dedicated to the first US President George Washington. Recognized around the world and a remarkable neoclassical landmark, The Capitol is where the US Senate and House of Representatives meet. The National Cathedral is the most well-known US cathedral. This beautiful building has been the site for many national memorial services. Among the country's most important institutions, the Supreme Court offers tours to learn about its history and inner workings. Dedicated to Abraham Lincoln, the Lincoln Memorial was completed in 1922 and it is modelled after Greek temples. The magnificent Library of Congress is the largest library in the world and houses approximately 90 million archives materials. The Jefferson Memorial is modelled after Rome's Pantheon and is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, third US President and one of the Founding Fathers. D.C. shed its former reputation as a boring and dangerous city and it now has shopping, dining, and nightlife befitting a world-class metropolis. Travellers will find the city new, exciting, and decidedly cosmopolitan and international.
