Слайд 2

Welcome to Washington, D.C. – the hometown of the President of the USA!

Слайд 3

The city stands on the Potomac River.

Слайд 4

It doesn’t belong to any state. It’s a city and district – the District of Columbia (D.C.).

Слайд 5

George Washington, the first President of the USA, after whom the city was named, chose an area for the capital in 1800.

Слайд 6

Washington is one of the most beautiful and unusual cities in the United States. It has little industry, and only one million people.

Слайд 7

There are no skyscrapers, as no building in the city may be more than 40 metres tall.

Слайд 8

The heart of Washington is the Capitol, which is connected with the White House by Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Mall is very broad and extends from the Capitol to the Potomac River.

Слайд 21

All the official buildings, museums and memorials are concentrated along the Mall.

Слайд 23

It honours the “Father of the Country”, General, and the first president of the USA – George Washington.

Слайд 24

It is about 170 metres tall and is called the “Pencil” because of its shape.

The Lincoln Memorial in the west of the Washington Monument honours the sixteenth president of the USA.
