About United States Capitol, Washington D. C.

The United States Capitol Building is where the legislature of the country meets and conducts its affairs. The lovely domed structure isn’t just a pretty sight; it stands as a symbol of the country in many ways.

The monument is located at Capitol Hill and is a wonderful example of official architecture that is both impressive as well as beautiful. Tourists flock to this place not just because of its political importance but due to its cultural significance as well. There is a beautiful fresco painted on the interior of the capitol’s dome that is certainly worth seeing. The interiors are intricately carved and art from the world over graces its walls. Another interesting thing to see here is the National Statuary Hall where there are two statues from each of the fifty states of America. Some of the greatest personalities from the country have been honoured here. A visit to the US Capitol is a must while travelling to Washington D.C.

  • An amazing architectural structure with many open spaces inside and outside the premises. Beautiful stairways and guides help navigate the facility. There is even a place where you can eavesdrop on people in the lower floors, but I won't reveal it. This building has a lot of history inside, so it's a great stop on a visit of Washington, D.C.

  • Finally got to see the famous building in all its glory. The architecture is good although it's not in par with the European counterparts. Overall a good place to visit.

  • Lovely ambiance to an evening stroll, especially because that's when you can have the National Mall all to yourself. It's beautiful when it's all lit up. Take a run by it in the morning for a peaceful workout.

  • The structure of the building is beautiful! The capitol rotunda is definitely a must to visit. The tour guide was super and funny! I loved it so much

  • Just wow! We contacted our state representative in advance to arrange a tour. My husband and I were taken by an aid with a group of students from the representative's office to the Capitol Building via underground tunnel. My favorite stop - and probably everyone's - was the rotunda. I hadn't expected to be so wowed by the architecture of the rotunda itself, and the amazing art collection housed there. I think this tour would be pretty boring for young kids, but amazing to adults or teenagers with an interest in American History.
