We enjoyed our visit to the Capitol Complex despite the rather bored and uninterested guide. You need to register ahead of time and book the visit, but it's worth it to see the monuments and buildings up close. We were fortunate to be on the...More

If you have been to Europe, the Capitol Complex will remind you of large, high ceiling European architecture -- largely Cubist with use of simple geometric shapes, very angular and minimalist. It is a visual experience to witness the large complex in all its grandeur....More

The capitol complex is open only by appointment now. There are planned trips which you need to check. As said above for security reasons it is not open for access all the time.
