PW Parliament


Palau's bicameral parliament building "Olbiil Era Kelulau" is a miniature replica of Washington's Capitol and sits on a hill overlooking the small city which counts a mere 391 inhabitants. As part of the so-called Capitol-Complex funded by low-interest loans from Taiwan, it was newly constructed when the country's capital was moved from Koror, the biggest city, to Melekeok state on the biggest island, in an effort to redistribute power among the altogether 250 islands.
