Shenyang is the provincial capital of Liaoning. The city is located north of the Hunhe River (in ancient China it was called “Shen Shui”), and Shenyang is therefore named after the river. It has an area of 13 thousand km2 with a population of 8.3 million. It is one of China’s most important industrial cities and famous historical and cultural cities, and is known as “the birthplace of one dynasty and the imperial capital during the reign of two emperors”. The Emperor of Hong Taiji established the Qing Dynasty here.
