Washington DC

Washington, DC grew up along the banks of the Potomac River, in a central location chosen by George Washington to satisfy northern and southern interests. Using Paris as his inspiration, city designer Pierre Charles L’Enfant fashioned the capital city with grand boulevards and ceremonial spaces. Since that time, Washington, DC has evolved into a fascinating, lively world capital, known for its vast green centres, urban areas, sweeping memorials and grand neoclassical architecture.
The city’s most famous landmarks are clustered in and around the National Mall, spanning from the Lincoln Memorial to the US Capitol. Flanked by dozens of museums and memorials, this green space plays host to festivals, protests, gatherings and performances.
