Space and Aeronautical Museum, one of the best museums that I've been to.



An actual V2 rocket






Space chess


Ukrainian-Soviet rocket




















Real piece of the moon which you can touch


More of the city. Pantheon revived?


Amazing architecture nonstop, next to each other, without exceptions.












The department of Agriculture is an enormous beautiful complex, could rival ceremonial palaces and parliament buildings around the globe








The Washington Monument










The White House in the middle








WW2 memorial






Lincoln memorial


Creepy inside








It was night already, the Jefferson memorial




Very impressive


Down to subway


Best stations in the U.S., look very eastern European-like


Very comfortable inside, soft seats


And back on the road

Now we're going into one of the major American cities, it has both great historical and economic importance for the United States and is one of the largest and impressive cities.

The city center is architecturally diverse.

More later, a lot more my Philadelphia collection is one of the most extensive ones, because there's so much to see in the city center.

I recognize some of the first pics. Aren't they from google? Because if they are from you why do they all look different? Sorry if this is incorrect.

I took all of the pictures in this thread. Not sure what you mean by that they look different, there's a lot of factors influencing how a picture comes out, one of them might be the fact that I used three different cameras.

My pleasure. Now comes the Benjamin Frankling Parkway and the surroundings, a magnificent avenue that stretches from the City Hall to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, along the way there are flags of every country in the world.

Looking back at the city hall

Skyscraper core is nearby, but more of it later.

Flags of the countries are in alphabetical order except the Israeli flag for some reason, which is the first one in line.

Bravo Burislav. Your pics are sensational.

I've always wanted to visit Philadelphia and Washington DC, even more so now coz of your pics. They're two of America's most stately cities with amazing architecture, especially in the classical vein, a style I'm quite fond of (along with other more modern styles).

Thanks for sharing.

PS: As for the Orthodox Christmas, Greek Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas on 25th December, unlike most other Orthodox denominations. The Christmas decorations were probably left there for New Years and Epiphany.

My pleasure. Along with Philadelphia and Washington D.C., Boston is the third American city with impressive variety and diversity of architectural styles that also shares deep historical roots. Naturally, I will show pictures of it later on as well.

Philadelphia is particularly interesting as the early capital and the place of the birth of this nation. Many of the 1700's and sometimes even 1600's buildings continue their existence and it just happens to be so that I find early American history fascinating in many respects.

Thanks for enlightening me, apparently it was pure coincidence. I was sure that the decorations marked our Christmas which I thought we shared our dates for.

That's all for Philadelphia, one of the greatest American cities, where independent America itself was born.

Next, we'll go on a quick excursion to the business capital of the American south/south-east.
