The Bund City Sculptures, Shanghai
(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Dozens of scultpures, monuments, and memorials make The Bund City Sculptures which stretches for 1.5 km (0.93 mi) along Shanghai's waterfront. Styles range include Classical, Romanesque, Baroque, Gothic, and contemporary, and at night, thousands of lights dramatically illuminate the surrounding buildings, lending the sculptures a magical and futuristic feeling. Statues and monuments tell different stories from the city's history: the concrete-tower Monument to the People's Heroes memorializes Chinese revolutionaries dating back to the Opium Wars, while the British Red Rock Monument reminds the city who emerged as victor of those battles.
