  • Interesting wall around the city. The wall can be walked around or a bike can be rented. Comfortable shoes should be wear due to the distance if one decides to walk the entire wall. 
  • Ancient city wall built during the Tang dynasty in the days when Xi'an was the capital of China. We arrived from Beijing to Xian by train and immediately, Czechs railway station saw this wall. It stretches for 16 km, is a quadrangle on the corners of the gate towers. On the city wall hosts a variety of races, event entertainment, there are townspeople strolling with children, tourists, couples in love. All uveshano red lanterns. Around modern high-rise apartment buildings.
