Xi'an, China

Xian, located in the middle of the fertile Guanzhong Plain with Weihe River in the north and Qinling Mountains in the south, is one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization and the cradle of the Chinese nation. It is one of the four famous ancient capitals in the world and ranks first among the ancient capitals of China as it was used as a capital for the longest time in China’s history, it served as a capital for the largest number of dynasties (the exact number is 13), and it was the most influential capital. Xian was once China’s political, economic and cultural center and the first city to open to the outside world. The famed Silk Road starts from Xian in the east, and Chinese silk, tea and porcelain spread across the world through the great road since its opening during the Western Han Dynasty (202BC — AD8). The “eighth wonder of the world” — Qin Shi Huang’s Terracotta Army stands right in the Lintong District of Xian. The long history and more than 6,000 years (as archaeological excavation shows) of cultural accumulation make Xian a “Natural History Museum”. Nowadays, over 10 million permanent residents live in this 10,752 square kilometers area, and Xian continues to attract more people because this amazing city becomes better with each passing day. It’s a perfect place to learn about China’s past and see what’s happening right now in the country.
