It is a very old and big city. It is situated at mouth of the Thames-river. It consists of several main districts, and also includes numerous suburbs. The main districts had formed during the long life of the city. For example, the City is the center of business life, or the Westminster where the Queen lives, or West-End, East-End and Cheap-Side… Names of all these districts are well-known in the world .
This capital is located on the north bank of the Potomac River . It was founded in 1791 and named in honour of the first president. There is not much industry it the city. And – what is more interesting – no building in the city may be more than 40 metres tall. The highest building in this capital is the Capitol, the seat of Congress. The Pentagon, located in the suburb of Arlington , is the headquarters of the military department.
. It is not the biggest city with the population only of 280,000 people. Many cities in this country are much larger, for example Sydney where 3.5 million people live. But this city is very beautiful. It was built in 1913 by architect Griffin and was planned as a capital.. There is a university and an international airport in this city.
The 2012 Summer Olympics, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad was a major international sport event, as governed by the International Olympic Committee that took place in this city, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. More than 10,000 athletes from 204 participated.
Originally the White House was grey and was called the Presidential Palace. It was built from 1792 to 1800 in this capital. In 1812 when the US and Britain went to war the Presidential Palace was burned. After the war it was recovered and to cover the marks of the fire, the building was painted white. It became known as the White House. The White House is one of the most popular tourist attractions. Every year more than 1,5 million visitors go through the 5 rooms that are open to the public.
The centre of this city is a small hill. Several streets run from that hill. Special charm is given by an artificial lake in the centre of the city. A fountain more than 100 metres high is in the western part of the lake. At night powerful lights illuminate the water. It is the Captain Cook Fountain, one of the main places of interest inthis capital. Another one is a memorial military museum.
