Introduction to Shenyang

Situated in the southern part of Northeast China and the central part of Liaoning Province, Shenyang boasts abundant natural and cultural resources, holding significant importance in understanding the historical development and cultural characteristics of the Northeast region of China.

The history of Shenyang can be traced back over 7,200 years, witnessing numerous dynastic changes. From the Zhou Dynasty's Yingzhou to the Warring States period's Liaodong Commandery, and from the Han Dynasty's Houcheng to the Liao and Jin dynasties' Shenzhou, the Yuan Dynasty's Shenyang Road, the Qing Dynasty's Shengjing, to the era of the puppet state of Manchukuo's Fengtian, Shenyang finally regained its name after the victory of the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. This historical evolution not only reflects Shenyang's changing status but also mirrors the political, economic, and cultural transformations of the Northeast region of China during different historical periods.

Covering an area of 12,980 square kilometers, with a length of 115 kilometers from east to west and 205 kilometers from north to south, Shenyang is endowed with rich natural resources. It possesses approximately 20 billion tons of coal reserves, around 107 billion cubic meters of natural gas reserves, and 36 mineral resources including iron, bauxite, silica, clay, and limestone.
