China.

create an esplanade to perform political acts.

Summer Palace: it is in a park located about 12 km from the center of Beijing. Since 1998, it
has been considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Beijing as Olympic Headquarters

The Olympic Village of Beijing was the place where the Olympic Games took place in 2008. The
area was composed of impressive stadiums and many skyscrapers.

Beijing was presented for the first time to host the Olympics in 1933 for the Olympic Games of
2000 but Sydney finally won.

In July 2001 it was chosen as the definitive headquarters.

The sporting event featured 302 events in 28 sports in which some 10,942 athletes from 204
