In the southeast of Zaozhuang City, Taierzhuang Ancient City is located in the central belt of the last section of the Grand Canal. It is a famous water town north of the Yangtze and an ancient canal city. The ancient city was demolished in the 1938 Battle of Taierzhuang. The old city seen today is a reconstruction, with many scenic spots reconstructed on their original sites. However, the city still retains many remnants of its history as a battlefield. Taierzhuang incorporates eight different architectural styles so that visitors can experience both the style of southern Shandong and the folk customs of north Jiangsu. You can't go wrong by taking a stroll among the quiet lanes, catching boat rides on the Grand Canal, or watching an exciting folk performance.

When I first came to Taierzhuang in Shandong, I encountered a lot of snow. After the snow, the ancient city was covered with silver and Yushu Qiongzhi. Everywhere, it was as touching as ink painting. Strolling through the bluestone road in the snow, and the winding water lanes, the white walls and black tiles in the front and the unique arch bridges in the sky seem to be in the waters of the south of the Yangtze River.
Walk in the ancient city of Taierzhuang, you can not only enjoy the ancient architecture of various styles, but also can see all kinds of wonderful folk performances. The hundred lions are old and the social fire parade is very lively, and you can also see the rare fire dragon steel flower, 1500 The golden "Iron Water Meteor" flutters in the sky and is spectacular. The atmosphere of the ancient city under the night is more intense, and the lights are not lively.
Taierzhuang in reality is not as dilapidated as I imagined, full of scars of war and artillery.
Contrary to this, the small bridges here are full of water, and the appearance of a misty rain in the south of the Yangtze River makes me a southerner who can't help but sigh. I didn't expect such a Northland water town in the north. It really makes people feel like they are in the town of Jiangnan.
The ancient city of Taierzhuang is located at the center of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and the junction of the four provinces of Shandong, Jiangsu and Anhui. From the perspective of historical evolution, Taierzhuang began in the Qin and Han Dynasties, developed in the Tang and Song Dynasties, prospered in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, especially in the Qing Dynasty by the Emperor Qianlong to be named "the first village in the world." Now the ancient city is a national 5A-level tourist scenic spot, covering an area of 2 square kilometers. It is the largest ancient city in China and has the reputation of China's most beautiful water town.
Before the Spring Festival, the entire ancient city was painted with various architectural outlines. With the flow of people and lanterns, the ancient city towers are full of splendor in the night, not to mention the world. The momentum of a village.
The ancient city of Taierzhuang is a place that needs to be slowed down and carefully searched for, because there are too many things to see here. The ancient city of Taierzhuang is not only a symbol of national spirit, a monument of history, but also a carrier of canal culture and Lunan culture. There are traditional shops such as tea houses, theaters, and pharmacies in the city.
