  • I visited this University weeks ago, within the framework of an invitation for academic purposes. Beijing University is one of the largest in China; founded in 1898, is considered to be the first University in the modern history of this country and boasts the largest library in all of Asia. Throughout its long history, it has played a key role in the development of higher education in China. Like other universities in the city, has a privileged location: its huge campus (known as Yan Yuan), is close to the summer palace and surrounded by gardens, palaces and other educational institutions. Its antiquity and its important role in the development of the Chinese education during the first decades of the 20TH century have become, among other things, one of the best universities in the country, witness of its presence in the higher posts in the national rankings. It has a very rich and varied University life and celebrated every year the International Cultural Festival, which organized a series of activities that manifest the multiethnic and global character of the institution. Finally, I enjoyed the visit only by my interest in academic and cultural in this institution, although I do not think that it is an attraction of interest for an average tourist in Beijing.
