Three pictures taken inside the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City, during our holiday in the U.S. last September. It is the house of government for the state of Utah, located on Capitol Hill and overlooking downtown Salt Lake City.
Much of the so-called 'rotunda', floors and stairs are open to the public. Our visit was on a Saturday so it was very quiet inside, but the interior was magnificent!
From 2004 the capitol underwent a major restoration. The project added 2 new buildings to the complex, while restoring many of the capitol's public spaces to their original appearance. There are 5 floors: 4 main floors and a basement. The interior is decorated with many paintings and sculptures depicting Utah's history and heritage.
The building is 123 m (404 feet) long, 73 m (240 feet) wide, and the dome is 76 m (250 feet) high. Very impressive! If you would like to read more about the capitol in Salt Lake City click HERE.
