In the Chinese museums write in Chinese
Constructed in 1993, a big and gloomy Museum of memory of the help to Korea against the USA (once a day is open; in the summer – with 08:00 till 16:00; in the winter – with 08:30 till 15:30; the entrance – $20) reminds the relic rest of times of cold war. And here rounds to China can be in the winter very hot in sense of numerous excursions! In a museum of 9 exposition halls devoted to the Korean war in what cards, plans, diopamas, machine guns, manual grenades, a photo of bloody events and a sculpture severe Korean and Chinese the fighter are shown. The Chinese museums as disappointingly it would not sound, very often sin with one shortcoming: all signatures to exhibits – in Chinese; in English it is possible to read only propaganda leaflets dumped by Chinese on a position of the Yankee in what spouses the fighter enquire of own husbands, for what those howl. The declaration of the United Nations on the declaration of war, being exhibited at the first hall, – the unique written document in all museum in what it is said about such terrifying fact, as that northern Koreans have launched war is in English made also. Therefore the trip to China without the aid of others and without the translator hardly to you will allow to read without the aid of others this document.
In an open hall the dusty, cracked marble slab with an inscription «Is exposed we will win America with wolf heart». In a hall No. 5 trenches are recreated, and in a hall No. 8 the impressing rotating panorama reproducing scenes of fight of Korean and Chinese the fighter against the American aggressors is shown. Sights of the People’s Republic of China in a posledniy hall are devoted to certain fighters – to the municipal heroes which photos are accompanied by descriptions of their feats. Behind a museum, at top Huayyuanshanya, is a mass grave in what remains more than 10 000 Chinese fighter are based.
China, bus, Coca-Cola!
The museum is located in the northwest of the city of which all China is proud; the bus No. 1, No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 will take you there. You should descend at a stop at sports stadium and to take place in the northern direction of minutes 5. To overcome the thirst played on the way the Coca-Cola which is on sale at an entrance in a complex, near the big memorial board Chiang Zemin glorifying eternal friendship of boundaries of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China will help.
