(4.6/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web)
The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses boasts a collection of over 8,000 carved soldiers and horses. The figures in this World Heritage Site were buried in the 3rd century BCE with the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, to protect him in the afterlife. The thousands of life-size soldiers stand at attention as an imperial army would in real life. Look for remains of the paint that originally lacquered each statue.

  • Of this wonder was written off, I do not add anything other than some practical information for visiting. If possible make sure to come to Xi'an in autumn and winter, (all of China would be visited during the winter months, few tourists, cold but pollution-free skies), and you will find this amazing place almost at your disposal. Rent a car or a taxi for the day (the hotel will arrange everything) it's not expensive and you can visit many other sites in the area. Don't come to Xi'an just to see the Emperor's Tomb, is a city with several attractions worth a visit, one of the richest in history. Allow at least three full days available. Easy to get there by plane or by train from Beijing. To return to the Warriors remember of them right, none of them is a copy of the other, everyone has a different expression. Useful in this connection the video being projected into the Auditorium. You don't need to employ a guide, all you can read before you will do. The ticket costs 150 Yuan. Open from 8.30 am to 17. The entrance welcomes visitors and leading to it were not worthy of the place, hideous souvenir shops ranging cleverly avoided. Enjoy your visit.

  • Struck the scale spectacle, were strange feelings, it was a bit scary, but the dive in the great story very excited. I was not even what it might bring in those distant times, this prompted me to explore this historic event, it was very interesting to what and why. I was very happy that visited, recommend to everyone.
