Located right across the street from the US Capitol is The Library of Congress, which is
the largest library in the world and home to over 22 million books, including the
Declaration of Independence and one of four copies of the Gutenburg Bible. According
to our tour guide, the Gutenburg Bible will probably be worth at least $1B
in the next five years, which explains why it is kept under heavy lock and key.
Our tour guide also explained that each sculpture or artwork present within
|The first hallway from the second floor|
|The arch where the tour begins|
|Beautiful stained glass ceiling|
|Poets and authors names were written on the ceiling and part of the artwork|
|One of four pairs of angels located on every corner of the ceiling|

Unfortunately they did not allow photography in the library itself.
But it was indeed a sight to behold!
