Russell Cave National Monument at Bridgeport
The Russel Cave National Monument was founded in 1961 and is the third largest cave in the state of Alabama with a length of 11.6 km. The facility is located on the border with the state of Tennessee. Archaeological finds have shown that the cave has been used by humans for around 9,000 years. A river also flows through the cave, which is why visitors to the cave also encounter bats, snakes and fish.

Horseshoe Bend National Military Park
At this point, in eastern Alabama, the last battle in the war against the Creek tribe took place in 1814. General Andrew Jackson, who later became the 7th President of the United States, attacked Native Americans with his army, and 800 of them lost their lives in the battle to defend their country. The park is also particularly interesting because of the many offers of living history, but also walks in the area are very relaxing.

Special buildings and structures

Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery
The Alabama State Capitol is the parliament building of the state of Alabama and was built between 1849 and 1851. In earlier times, the neoclassical-style building was also the first Confederate Parliament building (First Confederate Capitol). This is remembered today by a brass plate where Jefferson Davis was sworn in as the first (and also only) president of the southern states. Parliament moved because of renovations, and only the governor and some government agencies withdrew after the renovation was complete, and the two chambers of parliament meet in the Alabama State House.
