Xikai Church, Tianjin

4.3
Enter the ornately decorated interior of Xikai Church, the largest church in northern China. The Neo-Byzantine style church's construction began in 1913, with each brick transported here from France, and reached completion in 1916. Though it was somewhat damaged by the 1976 Tangshan earthquake, it was repaired and eventually placed on the city's cultural relics protection list in 1991. Within the church's pastel walls--among its 14 columns that support sweeping vaulted ceilings--you'll find a wealth of paintings and statues. Masses are held every morning, with special English language mass taken every Sunday at 11:30 am.

    I think ease around the shop I visited Church located in the city's downtown, so casually. Is the Church of the eye-catching look, but especially in real figures of Saints and wonderful. Also we watched a little church in maintenance in that condition, I felt many of the believers.

    Was built on the original French concession. Each one of the bricks was shipped from France. Worth visiting.

    Built in 1914, a nearly 100-year-old nice-looking church. Good to have a look, the people going there to pray in Sunday is huge.

Where to stay in Tianjin

The large city of Tianjin has more than enough accommodations to cater to the different tastes of its visitors. Just take a look at the central districts of Hedong, Hebei, and Hexi. Towering over the central area, an abundance of high-rise hotels offer rooms and facilities both budget and upmarket, and convenient access to the main transport hubs, shops, and sights. If you're planning on staying in town for a while, consider renting an apartment in one of the more residential districts further out.
