How do ancient and rich historical sites and modern urban life coexist

harmoniously? On June 22, a number of international participants came together

to talk about and experience Xi'an, an ancient city at the "Workshop on

Understanding Xi'an for International Friends, A Journey of Discovering the

Beauty of Ancient City Xi'an". The event was hosted by the Information Office

of the People's Government of Xi'an and it took place at the Daming Palace

National Heritage Park in Xi'an, China.

 

Guests included representatives from world-famous ancient cities such as Nara

in Japan, Brussels in Belgium, and Pompeii in Italy, and they shared

information online about the protection and utilization of historical sites and

remains. Opportunities were provided to experience simulated archaeology, enjoy

some night riding, and participate in a workshop at the Daming Palace National

Heritage Park. Foreign visitors from more than 10 countries, international

students and young returnees who have lived in Xi'an for a long time took the

chance to see the beauty of bringing together ancient sites and modern life.

 

In the Daming Palace National Heritage Park, the participants delved into the

Tang Dynasty through a series of activities such as an immersive archaeology

experience enabled by 3D digital projection technology, and a night riding

tour. The only archaeological exploration experience center in Xi'an, the

Archaeological Exploration Center is in the Daming Palace National Heritage

Park, covering an area of about 4.23 hectares. It is a comprehensive cultural

place that focuses on the popularization of archaeological science. From

investigation to exploration, excavation and recording, the participants

experienced the whole archaeological process, appreciated the beauty of Tang

Dynasty architecture, and became familiar with the efforts made by Xi'an to

protect ancient sites.

 

During the workshop, Xi'an, Nara, Pompeii, and Brussels, four of the

world-class ancient cities, joined together in an online video conference where

participants shared numerous stories about historical sites and modern life and

how young people creatively protect ancient cities. With the help of 5G and

holographic projection technologies, the event invited guests to connect

remotely to tell their own stories about historical sites. "I felt like I

traveled back several thousand years in one night. The event allowed me to

really feel the amazing historical civilization and charm of the historical

sites in Xi'an," said Mehad Mousa, an Egyptian PhD student in literature

translation from Northwest University.

 

With diversified monthly immersive city experiences and other activities, the

Studying Xi'an campaign aims to allow people from abroad living in Xi'an to

delve into the charm of Xi'an and to feel the authenticity, openness, and

inclusiveness of Xi'an.
