Lincoln Memorial

Local nameLincoln Memorial
LocationWashington D.C., United States

This monument commemorates the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It was designed in the style of Ancient Greek architecture. The building is surrounded by 36 columns, one for each state of the Union at the time of Lincoln's death.

Apart from the monumental statue of Lincoln sitting in contemplation, the interior includes two of his most famous speeches – "Second Inaugural Address" and "The Gettysburg Address". The speeches are embedded into the walls.

Another famous speech associated with this place is Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech which was delivered there by him in 1963.

It is a very popular spot and one of the best-known places in the city. Therefore it is usually quite busy and might get easily crowded.

The nearest Metro station is Foggy Bottom/George Washington University (Blue, Orange and Silver lines).
