Rebirth of an Ancient City

Source: Updated: 2023-03-14

Pingyao Ancient City is one of the best-preserved ancient cities in China and is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The site’s essence and cultural soul reside in its traditional residences. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC in 2012, Pingyao County of North China's Shanxi Province, where the ancient city is located, has ramped up protection efforts for the site, including granting financial subsidies to preserve and repair privately-owned traditional buildings.
