Xian - Introduction
The 3100 years old city Xiâ€™an has once been the capital of ancient China. Nowadays Xiâ€™an is the capital of the Shaanxi province. Although Xiâ€™an is not the capital anymore, it is still one of the most important cities of China, when it comes to culture, religion and ancient history. Of course Xi'an is famous, because of the discovery of the Terracotta army, but it is too restricted to mention that only. Besides the Terracotta army Xi'an has so much more to offer and because of that Xiâ€™an can be named in one breath with Athens, Cairo and Rome.
