"When Beijing regained its..." History Tip by o00o

History, Beijing: 10 reviews and 10 photos


Favorite thing: When Beijing regained its title with the communist takeover in 1949, Soviet advisors flooded in and the city underwent a period of reconstruction during which much traditional architecture was destroyed to widen Chang'an Dajie and to make Tian'anmen Square large enough to accommodate the massive manifestations favoured by the Soviets.
