United States Capitol, Washington, DC.

The rotunda, the crowds, the painting of the embarkation of the pilgrims in the Rotunda with William Brewster, and maybe a statue of William Jennings Bryan. And let's throw in the honorary American citizen and true hero of World War II, Raoul Wallenberg (who survived the Nazis only to die by the Soviets).
