Climbing Up The Grand Staircase – At Harrisburg Capitol Building Part 1

One of the National Historic Landmarks here in Pennsylvania is the Pennsylvania State Capitol. The Capitol of Pennsylvania is at Harrisburg, the 9th largest city in Pennsylvania, where this beautiful building is located.


This is the grand or the imperial staircase at the Rotunda of this building. I feel so excited climbing up the stairs and so is my toddler, George. The stairs is made of Marble and I read that the style of it is similar to the imperial staircase at Palais Garnier in Paris, France. I feel my hair standing when I got to enter the first time. I am mesmerized of the artistic details, the huge domes, murals in the ceiling, huge sculptures, absolutely wonderful! It makes you think that you are entering a royal palace.

There are so many things to see inside the Harrisburg Capitol. It is very ornate, particularly if you admire Beaux-Arts & Renaissance style. If ever you plan going to the state of Pennsylvania, make this place as one of your top places to visit when you get here. I highly recommend it, especially that the entrance is FREE!
