Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street

Located in Nankai District of Tianjin, the Ancient Cultural Street has the Heavenly Queen Palace as the center, 580 meters long and seven meters wide, showing the folk architectural style of Qing Dynasty. The street is lined by nearly 100 shops, such as Yangliuqing Painting Society, National Treasure Hall, and Chunzai Hall, selling curios, old furniture, the four treasures of the study (writing brush, ink stick, ink slab and paper), and local traditional commodities. With strong local cultural characteristics, the Ancient Cultural Street has been well received by foreign tourists, just like Liulichang in Beijing, and the Town God Temple in Shanghai.
