The city of Washington with its 632,000 inhabitants is a very different American city other major cities.
Located on the Potomac, built according to the plans of French Pierre Charles child, she does not have skyscrapers. Buildings can not exceed a certain height. In fact, you will not be out of place in Washington. Some monuments, museums, some streets have air resemblance to certain areas of Paris. I confess I did not expect this. I invite you in the following photos discover the famous White House behind its gates, the dome of the Congress, the monument to the memory of Lincoln.

As a federal capital, it is not part of the fifty states of the Union and depends directly on the federal government. As such, the city is home to many American institutions, such as the White House, the official residence of the president; the Capitol, seat of the Congress (consisting of its two chambers: that of the representatives and the Senate), as well as the headquarters of the World Bank (BM), of the Supreme Court and other federal organizations, like the Federal Reserve of the States United States (Fed). It also hosts 176 embassies and diplomatic representations. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
