United States Capitol - Review
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.

United States Capitol, Washington D. C. Reviews
We ended up doing a tour and it was so nice. If you get a chance go and you won't be disappointed. There is a cafeteria inside that isn't too bad but pretty pricey for what you get. It is also neat that it is connected to The Library of Congress. So you can just walk a short walk through the tunnel and check that out next.
The United States Capitol Hill is a magnificent building that symbolizes freedom and democracy. It symbolizes the best authorities in the United States. There are many people to visit and it is necessary to queue up early. There is a lot of outside parking spaces that require permission. It's really hard to park around, but there are many indoor parking lots nearby. Come on, the botanical garden next to cherry blossoms this season is also worth walking. Fantastic tourist attraction recommended for all!
Very educational and enjoyable. Recommend contacting your Senator or Representative to see about a guided tour. Well worth the time. Did you know that for a fee, you can request a flag that’s has been flown over the US Capital building? Comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Architect of the Capital’s office. Check your Senator’s or Representative’s web site for details. Very cool gift idea.
The infrastructure of the Capitol building is magnificent, large and beauty in white. One can reach here if you’re covering everything in the sequence from Lincoln memorial to Washington memorial till here. Walking is really very difficult so suggest some mode of commute for this. Your senator will give you formal permission to go inside it. It’s very not only very knowledgeable tour but also you will be glad to witness great architecture and hear some stories by a tour guide. You have to be careful about parking.
Overall an excellent experience. The reception area and grounds are very nice, the movie and tour of the rotunda was well presented. The cafeteria was clean and offered good choices for all during lunch hours. It would be hard to improve the experience of visiting the Capital. Really liked the tunnel system to the library of Congress.
