Welcome to Shanxi Province of China
2004/06/09


 Not long ago, I visited Shanxi Province of China during my vacation. That was my first trip to Shanxi. Five days’ visit changed my view towards the province, which used to be merely a yellow plateau abundant in pitch-black coals.
 Generally speaking, the economy of Shanxi Province is still less developed. However, there are so many wonderful things totally out of my expectation. With my own eyes, I found lots of priceless and unique heritages kept as old as their origination; and the old city of history built as modern as their new birth. The old and the modern show from different angles that Shanxi is not as it was and is developing with the advance of the times and preparing its might for the coming future.
 Shanxi, located in the middle flow of the Yellow River, is one of the cradles of the Chinese ancient civilization. Abundant cultural heritages are left by the long history. According to the statistics, the wood buildings built before Liao and Jin Dynasties now existing in Shanxi take 72.6% of the sum of those in China. Shanxi also embraces the only 4 Tang Dynasty wood buildings throughout the country. There are still numerous magnificent stone sculptures, color paintings and wall paintings. The number of tourist resorts in Shanxi is 148. So it is not strange that Shanxi enjoys the title of Museum of Chinese Ancient Building Art.
 Rich is resourses, Shanxi is known as Chinese Coal County. Shanxi has discovered more than 120 kinds of minerals and 26 kinds rank the first ten places in China and coal, bauxite, refractory clay, pearlite, gallium, zeolite, etc. take the first place. The total reserves of coal and bauxite occupy 1/3 of the total in China. Iron, copper, cobalt, gallium not only has large deposits but also have mining advantages.
 All in all, Shanxi has lots of unique resources and advantages and she welcomes the Polish friends to go for a tour or cooperate for development.
