The Science and Education Channel of China Central Television held a ceremony to mark the start of shooting of the TV documentary series "Top Historical and Cultural Streets of China".

The opening event, which was held in the scenic city of Huangshan in Anhui province, brought together senior local officials as well as major creators of the ambitious project.

"Streets of China" will paint a grand picture of the ten most renowned avenues in China. Among them will be the Guo Zi Jian Street in Beijing, and the Tun Xi Old Street where the ceremony was held.

The Tun Xi Old Street used to be known for its concentration of Anhui merchants, who once ruled the commercial empire of East China during the Qing Dynasty. The buildings and general planning of the neighborhood represents the highest levels of traditional Chinese architecture.

The series "Top Historical and Cultural Streets of China" aims to raise the public awareness of major traditional neighborhoods. The project has received support from the Culture Ministry and the National Cultural Heritage Administration as well as the Publicity Department of CPC Central Committee.
