Take a tour of US Capitol in Washington, DC — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.
Hi, I am Naomi and I am very excited to show you the world’s greatest attractions.
The US Capitol building in Washington DC plays an important rule in government and in the city’s skyline.
The building houses the legislative branches of the US government.
The design is a result of a competition created by the Founding Fathers in 1793.
The original flag did not have nearly as many stars as it does today.
Most of the dome as seen today was built during Abraham Lincoln’s administration.
The interior is highlighted by the Rotunda, whose high domed ceilings separates the chambers of the US Senate and the House of Representatives.
The Rotunda features some of the country’s most important and beautiful artwork.
Undoubtedly, the Capitol Building serves as the integral part of Washington DC.
