The largest city square in the world situated in the heart of Beijing. Tian'anmen was built in 1417 and was the entrance gate to the Forbidden City. Now the square stretches 880 meters from north to south and 500 meters from east to west. The total area is 440,000 square meters. That's about the size of 60 soccer fields, spacious enough to accommodate half a million people. Tips: just don't miss the flagraising ceremony that shows you the most elegant mien of the chinese soldiers:p
