But the 1980s and 1990s proved to be difficult for Chinese heavy industry.



But the city has also an history beoynd steel processing and coal mining. Shenyang was first used by the Manchu people as their capital in the 17th century and is today the biggest city in the Northeast.

This square you have also seen on the previous pictures is Shenyangs central plaza



As in Chengdu, they still have a Mao Zedong mamorial standing here, although nobody seems to care about it anymore.



Some Japanese and russian buildings line the square, a reminder of the past.
With the building of the South Manchurian Railway, Shenyang became a Russian stronghold, which occupied it after the Boxer Rebellion. During the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905), it was the site of the fierce "Battle of Mukden" from on 19 February 1905 – 10 March 1905.

The Japanese came back in 1931 as they invaded China and built the Manchuko in North Eastern Chinas dongbei region. This was also the time when Shenzangs heavy industry was developed



Soviet forces occupied Shenyang in ealry August 1945 on the surrender of Japan. The Soviets were replace by Nationalist Chinese, who were flown in on U.S. transport planes. During the Chinese Civil War, Shenyang remained a Kuomintang stronghold from until1948, although the Chinese communists controlled the surrounding countryside.



Despite all this bloodshed, Shenyang has continuously managed to grow in a major industrial town of 6 million inhabitants.

Theres a large historical tomb fomr the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) located in the parc



The park is huge, around 3 sqkm, thus bigger than the entire state of Monaco

It was established back in 1927, just before the Japanese arrived



It includes Zhaoling, the tomb of the second Qing emperor. The construction of the tomb took place between 1643 and 1651

It was very calm and quiet during our vist on a Friday afternoon. Quite unusual for such a big Chinese city

this area was less developed and looked even a bit "slummy" which is quite unusual given the generally well - organized design of Chinese cities



this mixture of architectonic styles from Bismarcks, Mao Zedongs and Hu Jintaos era was nevertheless fascinating

this area has an almost "East German DDR" appeal
