The Capitol — the seat of the American Congress. There are no skyscrapers in Washington because no other building must be taller than the Capitol.

The bronze Statue of Freedom by Thomas Crawford is the crowning feature of the dome of the United States Capitol.
The statue is a classical female figure of Freedom wearing flowing draperies. Her right hand rests upon the hilt of a sheathed sword; her left one holds a laurel wreath of victory and the shield of the United States. Her helmet is encircled by stars and features a crest composed of an eagle's head, feathers, and talons, a reference to the costume of Native Americans. A brooch inscribed "U.S." secures her fringed robes. She stands on a cast-iron globe encircled with the words E Pluribus Unum, the national motto at the time of her placement atop the dome. The lower part of the base is decorated with fasces and wreaths. Ten bronze points tipped with platinum are attached to her headdress, shoulders, and shield for protection from lightning. The bronze statue stands 19 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 15,000 pounds. Her crest rises 288 feet above the east front plaza.

Not far from the Capitol is the Washington Monument, which looks like a very big pencil. It rises 160 metres high and is hollow inside. A special lift brings visitors to the top from where they can enjoy a wonderful view of the whole city.
The Jefferson Memorial was built in memory of the third President of the USA, Thomas Jefferson, who was also the author of the Declaration of Independence.
The Lincoln Memorial is devoted to the memory of the 16th President of the US, the author of the Emancipation Proclamation, giving freedom to Negro slaves in America.
The 60 feet high busts of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln on the granite cliffs of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota are the work of sculptor Borglum.
