Washington DC: Quick City Overview












City: Washington DC
State: District of Columbia
Place: Quick City Overview








Just like Boston shares a lot of similarities with Amsterdam and London, Washington DC could be compared with Vienna because its big parks, gigantic palaces, and diagonal avenues influenced by the masonry. The essential area of the city starts at the Union Station, one of the monumental US railway stations, who almost surpasses the magnificence of the Grand Central Terminal of NYC. A few blocks away, the good stuff begins at the National Mall, a large green esplanade surrounded by some of the most important museum of the whole United States, such as the Air & Space Museum and the collection of museums of the Smithsonian Institute. The main axis of the National Mall lies, however, between two icons: the US Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial, where the most relevant protests of the US History ended in the 20th Century. At the middle of this axis is also the Washington Monument, whoโ€™s very similar to the Buenos Aires Obelisk. And lastly, after crossing through the Presidentโ€™s Park, are the White House and the Eissenhower Old Executive Building, used by the former US presidente as his headquarters in the times of the Second World War.
