Beijing is unique in history, culture and characteristics. One cannot understand the Orient without visiting China, and neither can one understand China without visiting Beijing.

The city was at the heart of the nation from the height of China's dynastic splendor 600 years ago to the collapse of feudal society in 1911. It was a capital of the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, and home to 34 emperors who ruled China's vast territory. Such a rich history has bequeathed many famous historic sites of great aesthetic and cultural value. The Great Wall, a huge project begun more than 2000 years ago, winds its way along the mountains and valleys bordering northern Beijing. The Forbidden City represents the crystallization of ancient Chinese architecture. A walk through the city reveals dozens of places worth more than just one visit: mansions, gardens, gate towers, temples, former residences of celebrities and sites where historic events took place.

During the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2002, a program of guided tours to the sites of historical and cultural interest will be arranged to provide the accompanying guests and the congress participants an opportunity to appreciate the splendid culture of the Chinese nation. In addition, tours to the local residential areas on the ride of a rickshaw and to the children's extracurricular activities center will also be organized to give the accompanying guests a feel of the local life.

Presented here are the most-beloved attractions no visitor to Beijing can afford to miss.
