Beautiful church
Tatjana Sigorskaia (2 years ago)
Красивое место в центре города в ухоженном зелёном парке на берегу огромного озера Pielisjärvi- евангелическо-лютеранская церковь Йоенсуу. Построена была в 1903 году по неоготическому стилю. Красивые витражи, старинный орган. В церкви около 900 мест для сидения на службе. Церковь популярное место для посещений. Здесь часто проходят концерты органной музыки и других музыкальных инструментов, песенные фестивали знаменитых певцов классического исполнения.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
