The Forbidden City of Gugun is the largest and most famous palace complex in the world, located in Beijing. It served as the residence of twenty-four powerful rulers of two dynasties of the Celestial Empire - Ming and Qing.
For several centuries, the Imperial Summer Palace was the second most important residence of the imperial family. The Olympic Park in Beijing is located in the northern part of the city.
In Beijing, north of Gugun, Jingshan Park is located. Translated from Chinese, Jinshan means "a view from the mountain", or "a mountain with a beautiful view". Hutuns are residential neighborhoods in Chinese cities, which appeared in the distant past.
In ancient China, they believed that the emperor was a messenger of heaven, therefore there must be a special connection between them, which was carried out by means of an annual solemn prayer on the day of the winter solstice in the temple of Heaven.
Hutongs are residential neighborhoods in Chinese cities, which appeared in the distant past. To the north of the Beihai Imperial Park, a chain of three lakes stretches, which the Chinese, inclined to exaggeration, called Shichahai, that is, “ten lands and seas”.
