Travel Guide


If you are looking for a taste of why Washington, DC is such an iconic city, then you have come to the right place.

Find out what makes Washington DC unique, take a look at some of its popular sights and discover how to spend your time in and around the city.

Mesto nesie názov podľa George Washingtona, vojnového vodcu Americkej revolúcie a prvého prezidenta Spojených štátov. Na území D.C. nenájdeme mrakodrapy, ktoré sú v iných mestách USA typické, pretože je zakázané, aby bola nejaká budova na území mesta vyššia ako budova Kapitolu. Prevládajú tu budovy verejných inštitúcií a administratívne budovy. Zástavba výškovými budovami sa začína až za riekou Potomac v Arlingtone.
