Baltimore is full of fortifications, as the Charm City (as Baltimore is called) played an important role in the formation of American statehood and in military operations. To begin with, Fort McHenry National Monument and Historical Shrine is the place where the US national anthem was born. The fort was built in 1798, and already in 1812 managed to become the defender of the city. It “participated” in other battles; both in the First and Second World Wars. Exhibits of the open-air museum include cannons, storage facilities, and household items. Also in the museum are held performances that will take you back to the era of the War of 1812 in the United States.
A pylon and some buildings Star-Spangled Banner Flag House is a place that Americans themselves visit in order to penetrate patriotism. The fact is that it was here that another symbol of statehood was stitched, talking about the flag of the United States (the one that was first flown over Fort McHenry). The house-museum stores antique items, furniture, as well as artifacts associated with the war of 1812. Phoenix Shot Tower is another historical place you should go see. It was built in 1828 and until 1846, was the tallest building in the entire state, giving way to the honorable Trinity Church in New York. While in Baltimore, you should seize the opportunity to visit another place – Washington Monument and Mount Vernon. This is the first monument put up to George Washington in the whole of the USA.

Among the religious monuments, the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen stands out. It was built in 1959, with its main feature being monumentality.

However, everything changes as soon as you go inside – such a magnificence of interesting objects inside! It is just like an embarrassment of riches.
