"Washington was founded in 1790 as the capital city of the USA. It lies on Potomac River. Its location was chosen because it was on a river which was good for trade and it was between the southern and northern states. In Washington is the seat of the government, Supreme Court and the President.
Interesting place and monuments:
There are too many monuments. Most of them are located on the National Mall. It is boulevard between the Capitol and the Washington monument. The Washington monument was built to honor George Washington – the first president of the USA. The Capitol is the political center of the US government.
