Lanzhou Silk Road Cultural Relics project

Photos taken on May 31, show two replicas of the Athenian Parthenon and Egyptian Sphinx in Lanzhou, northwest China’s Gansu province. The two replicas are the first exhibits of the Lanzhou Silk Road Cultural Relics project, which will occupy an area of about 2,667 square kilometers.

Once a major trading hub on the Silk Road, Lanzhou, has finally managed to put itself back on the map with the Lanzhou Silk Road Cultural Relics project. The park is built to develop animation, film, gaming and tourism industries in the city.
