Shaanxi, backbone of Chinese nation, carries the splendid history of Chinese civilization on the land of 200,000 square kilometers.

Here you can see the mausoleum of the Yellow Emperor—founder of Chinese civilization, the Qin Dynasty terracotta warriors—the eighth wonder of the world, Han Yangling Mausoleum—oriental Venus, Xi’an Beilin Museum—a stone-book library with masterpiece calligraphies from different dynasties and 72 imperial mausoleums.

The numerous cultural and historic heritage sites invariably show the completeness, richness and supremacy of cultural relics which witnessed the unprecedented prosperity of China when Shaanxi was the capitals of the Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang dynasties.

The charm of this thousand year old capital reflects the magnificent temperament of the Chinese nation. Being the “Natural History Museum” Shaanxi has endless poetries and stories to offer. The profound and splendid aura of Chinese civilization has subconsciously evoked a sense of nostalgia and meditation deep inside everyone who has ever visited Shaanxi.
