  • Xinghai is the biggest and the most beautiful square in the city, built in the shape of a star and is located on the shores of the sea. Visit her just need. The manicured, green lawns, figures of athletes on the perimeter, amusement park, modern hotels around are impressive. To the 100 anniversary of the city opened the sculpture 100 pairs of tracks and an open book. And here is a marble pillar was demolished this year, hope to put the new one. Be sure to visit the area in the evening, the view from the posvetkoj-stunner. The area itself symbolizes the unity of the sea and the sky. There is an annual beer festival and the Festival of fashion. Recently opened new Museum of Seashells (sign-50 w). You can also visit the exhibition center and historical Museum (admission is free, but you must show your Passport). Hold at Xinghai square can be a few hours, go on rides, drive on persons, rent videos or bike and just walk.
