In-Depth Information
A symbol of democracy the world over and the seat of American government,
Washington, DC confronts visitors with stirring icons and monuments at
every turn. This sparkling self-styled city on the Potomac River is full of
marble and light, with beautiful landscaping touches and centuries-old archi-
tecture. Built on top of former swampland, Washington was deliberately de-
signed into quadrants, with the US Capitol at its hub. Its many unmissable
sights provide unparalleled access to the workings of government, interna-
tionally famed museums with priceless exhibits, and the cultural and spiritu-
al foundations of the city and the nation.
