Capital city of China, Beijing is recognized as the political, education, and cultural center of the country. It is China’s second largest city with more than 17 million people in the municipality. An integral part of China’s history for centuries, Beijing is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, and huge stone walls and gates recording thousands of years of time. Beijing is a major transportation hub with dozens of railways, roads, and motorways passing through the city. It is also the focal point of many international flights to China. More than 140 foreign embassies are located in Beijing. Beijing’s art treasures and nearly 100 universities have long made the city a center of culture and art in China. The traditional architecture of imperial China is perhaps best exemplified by the massive Tian’anmen which remains the People’s Republic of China’s trademark edifice, the Forbidden City, the Imperial Ancestral Temple, and the Temple of Heaven. Beijing of the early 21st century has witnessed tremendous growth of new building construction, showing various modern styles from international designers, most noticeably in the area of the Beijing Central Business District, where KlingStubbins' Beijing office is located.
