В США много больших городов. Вашингтон – столица США – расположен на реке Потомак. По сравнению с такими древними историческими городами, как Рим, Лондон, Москва или Париж, Вашингтон – довольно молодой город. Столица многим обязана первому президенту США Джорджу Вашингтону. Именно Джордж Вашингтон выбрал место для столицы и в 1790 году заложил первый камень в здание Капитолия, где заседает конгресс. В Вашингтоне много исторических мест. Самое большое и высокое среди зданий – это Капитолий с палатой представителей и Сенатом.
Перевод на английский:
There are very many large cities in the USA. Washington, the capital of the United States of America, is situated on the Potomac River. In comparison with such ancient historical cities as, for example, Rome, London, Moscow or Paris, Washington is quite young. The capital owes much to the first President of the USA – George Washington. It was G. Washington, who chose the place for the capital and laid in 1790 the corner-stone of the Capitol, where Congress sits. Washington has many historical places. The largest and tallest among the buildings is the Capitol with its great House of Representatives and the Senate chamber. There are no sky-scrapers in Washington because no other building must be taller than the Capitol. New York is the largest city in the USA and the biggest sea-port. It is situated in the mouth of the Hudson River. New York was founded by the Dutch. It is interesting to know that Manhattan Island – the central part of New York – was bought from the local Indians by the Dutch for 24 dollars. That was the most profitable commercial deal in the US history. Today Manhattan is the heart of business and commercial life of the country. New York is the city of sky-scrapers. The highest of them is the 102-storeyed building. There are many other places of interest in New York: Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Centre, the shopping districts and the United Nations Building. In Manhattan at Broadway there is Columbia University, one of the biggest universities of the USA. Another large city of the USA is Boston, one of the first cities which were built on the Atlantic coast of America. It is an important port and a financial and cultural centre. It has three universities. Chicago is one of the biggest industrial cities in the USA and the second largest after New York. Los Angeles, in California, is the centre of modern industries. Not far from Los Angeles there is Hollywood, the centre of the US film business.
