With the country's communist government existence, the second largest city of China remains strong and intact in terms of economy and tourism expansion. The pure culture of all Chinese people living in the world provides such observance within this city's district.

Traced from another Chinese term called Peking, Beijing is a popular place because of its beautiful palaces, temples, and huge stone walls and gates.

Also, art treasures and universities have long made the city as China's cultural center .
In the present, the city is being part of the special municipal district by which it consists of the central city, called the old city- a place containing series of suburbs; and farmland and beyond. Central city has also 2 divisions, the Inner City and the Outer City.
The Forbidden City and the Imperial city lie within the inner city. The Forbidden City includes palaces of former Chinese emperors while the Imperial City describes and covers the Gate of Heavenly Peace (Tiananmen). This gate lines parades and firework displays that takes place everytime a national holiday comes.

Take a read at the following famous historic landmarks of China:
1. Beihai Lake- one of three imperial lakes in the center of Beijing, a beautifully landscaped park with temples and pavilions that surrounds the lake.
2. The Great Wall of China-hailed to be the largest structure ever built. Construction was done during the 400's BC and was continued on the A.D. 1600's
3. The Summer Palace- It is considered to be the summer residence of many emperors. The place showcases a number of pavilions, a large lake, and a covered path with paintings of historical and fictional Chinese scenes.
4. The Great Red Gateway- is the home of many Emperor Tombs. The area holds 13 tombs and only the tomb of Emperor Wan Li, who ruled from 1572 to 1620, has been excavated.
5. The Temple of Heaven- the most famous temple in China that entails ceremonial buildings grouped inside a walled park. The architectural wonder of the temple is a structure built entirely of wood and without nails.

Good day! Excuse me please, if it is possible, that i trouble you. Well i guess, you have no much time perhaps, but a little you may have. When it will be possible, pass please the adding letter to the organizations, departments or groups etc., or persons, some film(tv)producers, directors etc., journalists, which may be interestad in it. Of course, i try to find someones myself, but cuold not yet. Aleksey N. Skobelev - - P.S. If you want, you may write me certainly, too.
Hello! It is easy to see, that the topic of myths, legends etc. and other secrets, mysteries etc. are very popular. I could offer a lot of interestig, unknown in very many points, including for example martial art and its secrets, common and uncommon. As well in such things as folk medecine etc. For example, the martial art of dragon ( the art of dragon, the dragon school etc. ) is one of the oldest. And it is a secret clan system, given wholly not to every one. But the school dragon is not a sect etc. And the system dragon is not a religion, a cult etc. The roots of the school are in the prehistoric past and in many different lands. Thousands years before our era, the school already existed on the territory of the present Russia and some other countries. And for example in the times of one of the mass migrations of people from Europe, about 2000 years before our era , a part of the dragon clan went from Russia to India at the head of some tribes. In India the clan settled in the North-Western regions, spreading in the other lands, neighbour and distant. In our days the dragon school has also some public centres. But certainly not all organizations with the word "dragon" in the title relate to the clan dragon. And in the past, not everything about the dragon, was from the dragon. And as well it is clear, that the school and clan etc. and a club etc. are not the same ... ... ... Many thousand years before our era, in the lands of the present Russia and near by them some tribes joined. They are known as Arias...As well Rus, Urus... ... ... And like some other peoples, Arias ( Rus, Urus etc. ) had clans etc. Different clans had their totems, for example : wolf, horse, eagle, deer, bear, bull... One of the supreme clans of some tribes was the dragon clan... Dragon is a simble of the Sun, as you may know and as well it has some other meanings... ... ... In the 16-th century before our era Arias ( Urus, Rus etc. ) came to India... ... ... In the 6-th century before our era Lao Tzu ( Li Er ) came with some his followers to India from China ... One of the followers, Guan-Yin Tzu ( Li ), studied there the dragon system at a brahman by the name of Van. And when he came back to China, he organized there one of the branches of the dragon clan... ... ... If to talk about the content of the art of dragon, it includes not only techniques with weapon and without it, kicks, grabs, throws etc., but also philosophy, psychology, energy, medicine, fight dancing. And all other. Useful as well in sport and other sides of life.... ... ... In some systems of martial art there are some techniques, movement etc. with the word "dragon" in the title. And ones may think that this is the dragon system. But it is not so, the drgon system is much bigger ... ... ... Well, for now it is all, as a little start.There are many points to tell about, as you may guess. And as well the mentioned topic is not the only one, of course. However even only the mentined might be interested, thousands years, the school said almost nothing about itself, and only recently decided to tell something... ... ... When you will want to know more, to do something (to produce a movie etc. about that or something like that) or to organize something other, write me. And now pass please this letter to those, who will be interested at once. All the best! Aleksey N. Skobelev, a master of the dragon art - -
