The documentary tells the story of Hangzhou, the ancient capital of China which is a source of fascination for the world for more than 2200 years. The famous Italian traveller, Marco Polo, described the city as the most romantic and luxurious in the world.
22-century old Hangzhou still delights the visitor. The current capital of Zhejiang province is located in the southern end of the Great Canal – one of the biggest man-made structures in the history of civilization. Under construction since 495 B.C., the Great Canal has connected Beijing with Hangzhou. Nowadays, it’s a monument on the UNESCO World Heritage list – together with the Western Lake, the most famous urban reservoir or the culture of stampmaking.
Hangzhou is a home of silk, green tea and worldwide internet trading. It’s also a city where Taoism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam coexist among the great religious monuments and unique nature.
