Having jurisdiction over the former Xicheng and Xuanwu districts, the new Xicheng District (referred to as Xicheng District), has become the oldest district of Beijing, which has stood for more than 3,000 years as a city and more than 860 years as a capital.
As a central district of Beijing, Xicheng District is home to the headquarters of the Communist Party of China, offices of State agencies and more than 80 governmental ministries and agencies. The economy of Xicheng District has always maintained a thriving development trend. It has a modern financial industry, a booming cultural innovation industry, a high-tech industry with great potential and a wealth of commercial activities to offer. Its historical and cultural legacies form the basis for a unique tourism experience available to millions of visitors, whether foreign or domestic, each year.
Xicheng District has one of the most profound cultural legacies in the municipality. Its comprehensive and long-standing cultural traditions, including its Xuannan, religious, imperial, folk and guildhall cultures bear the old capital’s authentic flavor. Yet, the modern cultural facilities within its borders, such as the National Centre for the Performing Arts and the Capital Museum, project its rich performance resources, distinctly those of a modern metropolis based in China.
