The Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) will host a city walk to discover the Thăng Long Imperial Citadel on Saturday, from 9.30am to 12 noon.
The English-speaking walking tour will start in front of the historical Flag Tower with a brief introduction to the citadel. Then the group will proceed into the citadel to learn about and discuss the architecture and history of this interesting place.
An intriguing relic of Việt Nam and, signifying its historical and cultural importance, the Imperial Citadel was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010. At the citadel, many artefacts and items dating back to between the 6th and 20th centuries were excavated in 2004, including foundations of old palaces, ancient roads, ponds and wells. On top of these discoveries, archaeologists also found bronze coins, ceramics and pottery from many places in Asia, all of which demonstrate a close trading relationship in the area. Donation: VNĐ70,000/person. Limit: 10 people.
