About United States Capitol

The United States Capitol is the home of the United States Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the US federal government. It is located on Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The original building was completed in 1800 and subsequently expanded. Chambers for the bicameral legislature are located in each of the building's wing, the House of Representatives occupies the south wing and the Senate occupies the north wing. Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Tours of the interior are possible; however, these are best arranged by contacting individual members of Congress who consider tours part of their constituent services.

    Washington, as the capital and political center, has little impetuosity and prosperity in New York metropolis, and is more a cultural and historical accumulation. The U.S. three separate powers, Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court, are all here. Take the bus more than eight o'clock in the morning and go straight to the Capitol Square in the center of the city. This open garden park, about 3 kilometers long, is the site of national celebrations and ceremonies in the United States, and almost all of Washington's major attractions are covered by it. First of all, we will visit the Capitol Building at the eastern end. This ancient Roman style building is well known all over the world. It has become an image symbol of American democratic politics. It is also one of our lifelong aspirations to go in and have a look. From the stone steps of the fountain in front of the building to the elegant and noble basement lobby, under the guidance of enthusiastic staff, they queued for tickets (free of charge), and then they were grouped into groups led by the instructor to visit inside. First enter the Capitol Cinema and watch a movie about 10 minutes introducing American democratic politics. The opening remark of the film is that such a vast land, different nationalities, different beliefs, different classes, different voices can make all these differences reserved separately and unite to form a strong country. This is the marvelous greatness of American democratic system. Yeah! Since the day when human beings have a country, they all live under totalitarian rule, and their beliefs and interests are inconvenient. It is difficult to live in a country with their own beliefs and interests. The United States has become a powerful country through democracy, and naturally can proudly promote its superior political system to other disputed backward countries. After watching the movie, he went to the circular hall on the third floor, which contained historical murals and statues of well-known state legislators. Listen to the lecturer pouring out his historical story. The parliamentarians'defense venue is not open to ordinary tourists and can not bet on the style of these eloquent speakers.

    I need to make an appointment in advance. I made an appointment at 2:40 p.m. and arrived at 2:50 p.m. on that day. It's still okay. There are appointment and non-appointment channels in the queue. Because I missed the time, I walked through the non-appointment channels, and I didn't wait long to go in. It's mainly to visit two main rooms. The core is the dome of Congress. It's great. Remember what President Lincoln said - "When Congress is built, people will think our country is moving forward, Congress is stagnating, people will think our country is going to decline, so we need to build Congress. "

    提前预约了有幸进入国会大厦参观,订好下午一点然而12点就到了,门口都是警察大中午就我一个游客,我还是硬着头皮进去了,里面的人却是很多,参众两院分南北两个版块,都可以参观,只是必须要按照单子上预约的时间,第一个流程是看电影,主要是介绍国会大厦的由来,通过美国独立战争巴拉巴拉,第二个流程便是排队跟着导游走访参议院内部,了解议员们每天如何办公的,期间不少政府官员经过,他们衣着光鲜行色匆匆,对游客们早已司空见惯了。不得不说里面太大了,走到头昏眼花站立不住导游激情澎湃的演讲还是没有停,真应该给她颁发最佳敬业奖。从国会大厦穿过地下通道可以到达国会图书馆,有点远。

    The U.S. Capitol Building is the seat of the U.S. Congress, located in Washington, D.C. Americans regard the Capitol as the supreme symbol of state power owned by the people, governed by the people and enjoyed by the people. The Capitol was laid by President Washington on September 18, 1793 and put into use in 1800. During the Second American-British War in 1814, it was burned by the British and some buildings were destroyed. Later, the conference rooms, round roofs and round halls of both houses of the Senate and the House of Representatives were built, and many times they were rebuilt and expanded. To visit the rooms of the Senate and the House of Representatives and appreciate the dome of the building and its art collection, you need to stay here for at least an hour. If you want to get a taste of the Capitol, you'd better contact the senator or congressman before you visit to see if you can participate. From Monday to Saturday, from 8:30 to 16:30, visitors to the Capitol are open. Of course, you'd better book it before you go. Because of the advance booking, we were able to go inside for sightseeing. The booking procedure is very simple. You can see it on the official website of the Capitol Building on the Internet. Anyone can make an appointment, and it's free. When you go in, you will give each person a headset, followed by a tour guide. The main visitors were some artworks on display and the transparent roof of the Capitol. It has its own souvenir shop, which can sell gifts, business cards and other things.

    美国国会大厦坐落在华盛顿特区国家广场以西的国会山之上,美国国会所在地,是美国的权力中心。国会大厦是一幢长233米的3层建筑,以白色大理石为主料,中央耸立着3层大圆顶,气势宏伟,一尊6米高的自由女神青铜像屹立在圆顶之上,她头顶羽冠,右手持剑,左手扶盾,这个圆顶也是美国的标志。由于电视新闻报道华府作出决定时多出现的是国会大厦,加之经常配合有“白宫方面宣布”的言辞,且其风格巍峨挺拔,导致许多人误将国会大厦认为是白宫。

    Very magnificent building, pure white solemn building, in the blue sky background, as beautiful as painting. Not many people. In order to enter the security inspection, internal visits are organized, and will be divided into groups led by people, while explaining and visiting. First it reviews American independent historical movies, and then it enters the hall. The circular dome, like a church, is full of painted pictures and reliefs. There are statues of presidents and celebrities in the hall, many historical allusions affecting the development of the United States. Because this is Washington's commanding heights, also known as Capitol Hill.

    This is one of my favorite attractions, none of them. Capitol Hill is a beautiful building, which is the most frequently appeared in the news USA . While receiving visitors, the Senate and the House of Representatives meet. The day I went, I was preparing for a press conference. It's incredible that we should be open and dignified. No tickets are required to enter Congress. You can go to the official website of Congress to make an appointment for your entry. It may take a long time to make an appointment. Otherwise, what you see is that the appointment is completed all day. But don't worry if you don't have an appointment. You can queue up without an appointment. Security checks on entry to Capitol Hill are more stringent. Men's belts should go through the machine alone. Water can't be brought in. So when I came out, an old European woman gave me a bottle of water and she said she couldn't bring it in. How did she know I was thirsty: D) Let's first show you a short film about the origin of the U.S. Congress, what bills were introduced and what was done. After watching the short film, there will be a commentator to show you around. In the form of a group, the lecturer explains it to everyone through headphones. There are many American children to visit, patriotic education ah~
