    The grand residence of emperors and scholars in the past. The setting for Bernado Bertolucci's epic The Last Emperor. The Forbidden City overwhelms the senses in its sheer size.

    Of course, you'll visit the Forbidden City when you're there. Spring for the translation - there's so much to see and so many details, you don't want to miss anything.

    Don't miss this one. Once again it's about temples and the like, but bearing in mind this is the place where the last emperor has been held during his entire childhood makes it even more amazing.

    Forbidden City has a very impressive architecture
    From 1421 to 1924, twenty-four Chinese emperors lived here. It must be difficult to imagine what life was like for them to live in this amazing city.

    During important ceremonies presided over by the emperor, guards of honor lined up on the square between the Meridian Gate and the Gate of Supreme Harmony, the largest square in the palace complex.
