DALIAN 大连

My other China photo threads:

Qingdao

Shanghai – Blade Runner
Shanghai – Old Town
Zhujiajiao

Dalian is Manchuria’s southernmost city and one of the most important ports of China.
Up to the mid of the 19th century it was little more than a small village before the peninsula was leased by the Russians in 1898 who made
Dalian the final stop of the Trans-Siberian Railway and also took over the fort in nearby Port Arthur.
Following the famous Siege of Port Arthur and the end of the Russo-Japanese War in 1905 the city became Japanese until the end of 1945.

Today it is a bustling city of 3.6 million inhabitants that is well-known in China for its IT industry and many western computer companies such
as IBM, HP or Dell have their Chinese HQ in the city.

All photos are from 16-17 October 2010

Great tour, Raptor. I'm quite surprised to see some signs in Russian as well as Russian-influenced architecture. Dalian is not really that close to Russia. But it certainly adds some extra flavor
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2207/...743d10f7_o.jpg

What I found really nice in China (as also seen in this photo of yours) is the way older people spend their time together outside and engage in all kinds of activities from playing cards and checkers to Tai chi and kicking that little ball (whatever that game is called) to each other

Dalin (Дальний) was founded by Russian Empire in 1899. Some buildings in down-town were build by Russians
(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5062/...6fdf88a4_o.jpg

). central squares and streets was planned by Russian engineers. First name of central square ZhongShan Square "Nicolas II square"

Best Dalian thread I have seen. Dalian is really underrated, looks nice and modern in the same time and seems to have a lot to offer!

I have the impression of seeing the first panorama somewhere else, or maybe it is because that's a popular angle.

btw, is Dalian that important in IT industry? AFAIK, IBM and HP have their Chinese HQs in Beijing, and Dell China HQ is in Xiamen.
