  Beijing - Teananmen Square

Long years ago emperors disclosed decrees from the Gate of Forbidden city, and in 1949 Chairman Mao proclaimed the declaration on education of the Peoples Republic of China from the Gate. That is why the huge portrait of Chairman Mao and a header "Long live the Chinese People Republic!" hangs at the Gate.

Once this Gate were main in an ancient city which had been enclosed by fortifications. After re-planning Pekin in 50th years of XX century this Gate remained the unique construction which escaped and kept after destruction of fortifications.
