The US Capitol

The Capitol is one of the symbolically the most important buildings in the world standing there for more than two centuries as a monument of American people and their government. 

The Capitol experience is one of the kind, unique in it's own way. You can feel it's importance.  The best view is by far the one from the Reflecting Pool in front of the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial and from any direction in it's Park.

The newest addition to the original tour is the underground facility that features the entire historical part of the Capitol's story. The outside appearance is completely intact and you can enjoy the original grounds design by Frederick Law Olmsted.
