Washington, D.C. travel tips

1) Visit the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, Washington's most famous landmark

The Abraham Lincoln Memorial is built in the form of a large temple, which is supported by 36 columns. Outwardly, the memorial looks like the ancient Greek Parthenon. Inside the temple, there is a 5-meter marble statue of Abraham Lincoln. The memorial reminds Americans that all people should be free.

2) Experience the mysteries of the universe at the House of the Temple in Washington DC

The House of the Temple is located in Dupont Circle, a mile from the White House. It serves as the headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Inside the building, a museum is dedicated to Albert Pike, head of the High Council of the Scottish Rite. The design of the Temple is based on the Mausoleum of Satrap Mavsol in Halicarnassus. The structure resembles a magical temple. The fact that it is located among residential buildings makes the House of the Temple even more original and attractive.

3) Check out the Georgetown Cupcakes in Georgetown, Washington, where there is always a queue

Walking around Georgetown, you can stumble upon a queue in a cafe that lines up on the street. Most likely, this is the legendary Georgetown Cupcakes.
