Introduction to Culture Square (长春文化广场)

The Culture Square is the biggest city square in Changchun. It is located in city center and used to be the capital square of the puppet Manchukuo.You should not miss this during your Changchun tour

Now it also become the landmark of Changchun.It starting north of the crossroads of Xinmin Dajie and Jiefang Dalu, is another, more urban hangout.Covering an area of 0.205 square kilometers, it was regarded as the national square during the Manchukuo period (1932-1945).

At the center of the square is the sculpture of Sun Bird. The outdoor music altar is situated on the north side. At the north tip is the main building of the square.

For casual visitors to Changchun, this is probably a good place to visit by taxi.Many people fly kites from this square, while others play traditional Chinese instruments or just sit and relax.There are more formal performances are sometimes held on a temporary stage set up near the high school.Crossing the street to get to this location is a skill and best done with locals.

No guide to Changchun is complete without a mention of Pu Yi, the Last Emperor who acted as a puppet of the Japanese when Changchun was capital of the puppet state of Manchukuo. The old capitol building of Manchukuo is of more historical than aesthetic interest, but there is also a Puppet Imperial Palace that might merit a visit while you are in town.
