Lincoln Memorial: Honouring the great president
In West Potomac Park, you can find the Lincoln Memorial, which was built between 1915 and 1922. It consists purely of marble. It was built as a memorial for the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, and his achievements. On the north side of the building, you’ll find an almost 20-foot-high statue of the former Chief of State. The complex is intended to remind us of the abolishment of slavery in the US, and the end of the civil war between the north and the south. Martin Luther King held his famous “I have a dream” speech on the steps of this memorial.
National Mall: A park complex with various attractions
Between the Lincoln Memorial and the State House lies the National Mall, a park featuring wide boulevards and containing various attractions and museums. This includes, for example, the National Air and Space Museum, which is dedicated to American space travel, and the National Gallery of Art, which displays art from medieval to modern times across two buildings. The mall is also the home of the Washington Monument - an obelisk that was erected in memory of the first US president, George Washington. With a length of about 3 miles and a width of up to 300 feet, the park complex is the perfect place to take a stroll and relax. It is especially busy during the summer months. With a flight to Washington with FlyDoha, you’ll discover everything the city has to offer.
