Suburban areas of Beijing also have many notable places, such as "Valley of the Kings". 30 rulers of the Ming Dynasty are buried in this valley. The entrance to the burial has been strictly forbidden until recent time. Only specially selected persons had a chance to see the grave of the legendary emperors. Today this place of interest is very popular among visitors.
Gugong Palace in Beijing is one more remarkable architectural structure besides the Great Wall. It was built in the beginning of the 15th century, and remained the residence of the Chinese rulers for many years. The palace is a large-scale architectural complex that consists of a main building and several auxiliary buildings. The territory of the palace also remained closed for a long time, so this sight had another interesting name - the Forbidden City. When it comes to describing the modern city, its main and best known symbol is Tiananmen Square - the largest square in the world, which can accommodate more than one million of people. Among remarkable objects located next to the square we simply cannot fail to mention Mao Zedong Mausoleum and the Parliament House.
