On July 16, more than 300 Chinese and Russian youth representatives of the 6th “Yangtze River-the Volga” Youth Forum, visited the Changsha Binjiang Cultural Park. It is a landmark of Changsha City, and is the location of the Changsha Planning Exhibition Hall, Changsha Library, Changsha Concert Hall, and Changsha Museum. Through the visit, they would deepen their impressions about Changsha as the “City of Media Arts”.
When visiting the Changsha Museum, they were given a detailed introduction of it:
The Changsha Museum combines the functions of historical relic collection, protection, research, exhibition, publicity, and cultural education. It has five floors, and covers an area of 24,000 sqm. There are nearly 50,000 collections, including world-famous bronze ware in the Shang and Zhou dynasties (1600 BC – 256 BC), historical relics of Chu Kingdom in the Han Dynasty (202 BC- 220 AD), and porcelain from Changsha Kiln.
Anna Abramovskaia from the Vyatka State Humanities University, a centurial university in Russia, is an archaeology fan. She was fascinated by the exhibits in the Changsha Museum. She said this is her first trip to China and she was impressed deeply by Changsha’s hot weather, and the auditorium of Hunan University. “The auditorium is awesome! I took a lot of photos, and I would like to share them with my families and friends in Russia!” she said.
Anna Abramovskaia views historical relics.
Anna believes that Hunan has “deep sense of culture and history”. “I love historical relics, which provide clues on how people lived in ancient times. Today, in the Changsha Museum, I found ancient Chinese way of life. It is amazing!”
Anna added that, this is her first time to be exposed to such exquisite bronze ware. In ancient Russia, lacquerware were commonly used, while bronze was seldom used to make vessels. She greatly admired the exquisite bronze ware, and ancient Chinese wisdom and skills.
