Shijiazhuang: A City Pulled to Hebei by Train


Shijiazhuang (shí jiā zhuāng 石家庄), the capital of Hebei (hé běi 河北) Province, located in the vicinity of the North China Plain (huá běi píng yuán 华北平原). It borders Beijing, Tianjin (tiān jīn 天津) and Baoding (bǎo dìng 保定) in the north, Bohai Sea (bó hǎi 渤海) and Hengshui (héng shuǐ 衡水) in the east, Xingtai (xíng tái 邢台) in the south, and lies against the continuous Taihang Mountains (tài háng shān 太行山) in the west. Covering an area of 15.8 thousand square kilometers (6100.4 square miles), it has 6 districts, 12 counties, 5 county-level cities and 1 national-level new and high-tech development zone under its prefecture.
Shijiazhuang is often referred to as being lucky in recent Chinese history. Once a small village, it developed under modern railway construction. A century ago, when the Lu-Han (lú hàn 卢汉) Railway stretched to the former Shijiazhuang Village, it brought with it new opportunities, opening an industrial chapter in Shijiazhuang. No one could have predicted that this small, unknown village would have developed rapidly into the modern capital city of Hebei Province. Shijiazhuang is a newly industrialized city. It experienced dramatic growth after the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949 and was not relatively prominent until that time. It is a central hub of transportation routes.
As the economic, political, cultural and scientific center of Hebei Province, Shijiazhuang is becoming more and more beautiful with recent urban development. A jade-like moat embraces the city gently, bordered by 20 charming parks. This beautiful city is filled with culture and development, attracting visitors with new features daily.
