The DC is the territory of national capital of the USA with its own laws and regulations.

It is situated on both banks of the Potomac river.

This place was chosen by the first American president George Washington.

The place was called the district of Columbia in honor of Columbus, the discover of America, and the capital got the name of Washington after the name of its founder.  

Washington is one of the most magnificent and unusual cities in the USA. In the centre of it rises the huge dome of the Capitol – a big white dome standing in a circle of pillars. It’s rather easy to get lost in this huge building, full of paintings and statues.

Not far from the Capitol is the library of Congress, the largest in US. It contains more than 13 million books, more than 19 million manuscripts, including the personal papers of the American presidents.

Washington greets tourists with the Cherry Blossom festival every spring. The pink and white blossoms of the Japanese cherry these near the Washington Monument create a magnificent delicate picture, and you are to visit Washington just to see it, and then all beauties of other cities will seem to you gloomy.
