Washington DC: The American Acropolis

Published Date Author: , October 3rd, 2011

Gay Washington DCWashington D.C. is a rich and beautiful capital city like no other. Not only is it a city of vistas, a marriage of geometry and art but unlike other large cities, it isn’t dominated by skyscrapers but by memorials and monuments that leave an impression of great history, sacrifice and wonder.

Most people do not know but Washington D.C. is the world’s first planned capital city as well as one of the most beautiful capitals I have ever seen. Walking through it you notice marble laden structures dripping with decorative accents and incredible detail that evoke the power and genius that this country has to offer.

Many of the famous monuments in D.C. are clean white masonry with such a strong neoclassical design that you can imagine yourself walking through the ancient temples of Greece as they once stood in their prime thousands of years ago.
