Where is National Mall?
The National Mall & Memorial Parks is an elongated Park in central Washington DC. Like a huge Promenade, it stretches from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial, along well-known Washington museums, monuments and landmarks.
“Mall” is 4 kilometers long and 91 meters wide. And as a Park it is popular. One of the sunny days here tourists and visitors stroll, people jog (e.g. after their work) and families make excursions. And again and again you also see school classes dying to visit a monument or Museum.
The most important and striking monument is certainly the Washington Monument: a central point between the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial stands the huge Obelisk. The Washington Monument is reflected by the way in the elongated pool reflection. Other monuments at the Mall include: the Korean War Vetreans Memorial, the Second World War Memorial, Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial.
9 of the Smithsonian Institution’s 14 museums are located along the Mall. Including The National Gallery of Art sculpture garden, the National Museum of American History, the National Museum of National History, the National Air and Space Museum and the Hirshhorn Museum.
