Located at the very center of Beijing City are both the Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City. Built at the beginning of the 15th century, the Forbidden City, separated from the Tian'anmen Square by the Tian'anmen Gate, was home to many Chinese emperors, from the Ming Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty and was declared "World Heritage Site" in 1987. While the Forbidden City, counting 980 buildings and covering an area of 720.000 m², now houses the Palace Museum with an impressive collection of artworks from both the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Tian'anmen Square is surrounded by historical sights, such as the "Monument to the People's Heroes", the "Great Hall of the People" as well as the "Mausoleum of Mao Zedong".
