IN turns 10 in Guigongfu, a peculiar historical site
Dear Beijing Art and Culture Friends, Protected content
InterNations turns 10. This is a good reason to celebrate a nice birthday event combined with Art and Culture. Last in Guigongfu it was so marvelous and successful so I would like to give you another opportunity to discover with new friends this historical place.
Guigongfu, an imperial mansion, members of one of China’s most historically-significant dynasties were proud to call it home once upon a time. It is now known primarily for housing a roast duck restaurant and different typical Chinese delicacies.
Tucked away in a fairly unremarkable hutong off Chaoyangmennei Dajie, the courtyard was the residence of Duke Guixiang, brother of empress dowager Cixi. Guigongfu was the place where the empress, remembered as a charismatic-yet-evil despot, used to visit her family, and where her daughter-in-law, empress dowager Longyu, was married and lived before moving to the Forbidden City.
Glimpses of Chinese Art and Culture. You should not miss this peculiar historical site.
