Overview of Three Kingdoms City

The Three Kingdoms City covers an area of 35 hectares and the scenery is very grand. According to the needs of the plot of The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, dozens of large-scale scenic spots, such as Wuwanggang, Ganlu Temple, Cao Ying Shui Hanzhai, Wuying, Qixing Temple, Racecourse and Dianjiantai, with a construction area of 85,000 square meters, have been built in the cities of the Three Kingdoms. Later, due to the development needs of film and television works, the scenic spots such as "Peach Garden", "Nine Palaces Eight Diagrams Array", "Fire Red Cliff Special Stadium", "Competition Arena", "Red Cliff Ancient Trestle Road" have been built successively, enriching the cultural content of the scenic spots and promoting the traditional culture of the nation.

The gate building of the Three Kingdoms is tall and powerful, with flags fluttering in the wind. It is even more solemn and solemn with the two gods and beasts of Tianlu and Fangxie in the square. This is where Zhuge Liangzhi set up an empty city plan in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms and retired from the shooting place of Sima Yi's hundreds of thousands of troops. Cao Jun's water and drought villages, which are covered by three Yuanmen, are huge in scale. They are composed of four enemy buildings and buildings and boats. They are the shooting places of such plays as "Burning Red Cliff in Fire", "Heng Kang Fu Poetry" and "Grass Boat Borrowing Arrows" in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Cao Cao Point will be on both sides of Taiwan, standing tambourine drums, vaguely visible a generation of heroes Cao Gong's prestige at that time. Standing apart from each other, it is also reminiscent of the countless heroes and heroes of the Three Kingdoms'time, who were finally transformed into a personage in the history of China in the rolling Yangtze River and admired by generations to come.

Three Kingdoms City Scenic Spots

Three Kingdoms Gateway

First of all, the gate building of the Three Kingdoms is in sight. On the tall gate building of the Three Kingdoms scenic spot, flags and banners were displayed. Two Han Dynasty gods and beasts, Tianlu and Fangxie, stood in the square. The gate building was originally the empty city plan set up by Zhuge Liangzhi in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and returned to the shooting place of Sima Yi's hundreds of thousands of troops.

Han Ding

In the central square of the city, where flowers are crowded, a huge Han Ding stands proudly. Smoke billows up from the Ding, which adds the smoke of beacon fire to the scenic spots of the Three Kingdoms.

Peach Garden, Racecourse

On the right side of Chengmen Lou Avenue, dozens of military tents are stationed. Peach blossoms are in full bloom in Taoyuan. A hero's tearful tune sounds. Liu Guanzhang is drinking and vowing to sacrifice the world. On the hillside behind the Peach Garden, a group of three Kingdoms'figures, soldiers and horses, are vividly carved with both physical and spiritual features, reproducing the historical figures in famous works and legends. On the left side of the racetrack, the film and television equestrian stunt team taking part in the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" actually performed "Three Britains vs. Lubu" for tourists every day. The scene was magnificent and exciting. More than 40 horses were well-trained horses. Tourists could also wear military uniforms to experience the heroic spirit of jumping whips and pointing out rivers and mountains in troubled times.

Caoying Water and Drought Village

In front of the main road, there are three lofty Yuanmen, which are the Caoying Water and Dry Village. It is composed of Cao Cao's commander-in-chief, Yuanmen, four enemy towers and buildings and ships. It is the shooting place of such plays as "Burning Red Cliff in Fire", "Heng Kang Fu Poetry" and "Grass Boat Borrowing Arrows" in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Cao Cao Point will be on both sides of Taiwan, standing tambourine drums, vaguely visible a generation of heroes Cao Gong's prestige at that time. Standing on the platform at the point of three stories, you can see the scenery of Shuizhai Village from a very long distance. The terraces on the land and the riverside buildings on the lake confront each other, which makes people marvel at the ingenuity of the designers and the ingenuity of the builders. The whole Cao Ying is also the shooting site of the scene of "Fire Red Cliff".

Arena, Chibi Trestle Road

Under the ancient city wall, about 100 meters long, is a dock-castle-style competition venue, which has the characteristics of the Han Dynasty. Its building area is 1,234 square meters. The "bullfighting in the Han Dynasty", "horsemanship acrobatics" and "animal training performance" here are thrilling and exciting. The Red Cliff Trestle Road, which was opened up by the mountains, is particularly quiet and elegant under the cover of green pine and green bamboo. It listens to the sound of the lake gently patting the shore. After experiencing a heavy historical picture, people find a place to relax their body and mind.

Wuying Jiugong Bagua Array

To bypass the trestle road is Wuying, Sanjiangkou, on the Bank of Dafuzhu, which is separated from Caoying Shuizhai. Wuying is built of stone, which is in sharp contrast to Caoying's wooden structure. Wuying mainly has the main landscapes of Zhou Yu's Point Jiangtai, Qixing Temple, Shuizhai, Nine Palaces and Eight Diagrams Array. The seven-star altar near the lake is in the shape of a pyramid, which is quite mysterious. "Zhuge Liang borrowed the East Wind" was filmed in the Seven Star Temple. It is said that when the film crew of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms filmed the scene of "borrowing the East Wind" here, the wind suddenly blew up on the calm lake.

In addition to the "Zhuge Liang borrows the East Wind" of the Seven Star Temple, the "Nine Palaces and Eight Diagrams Array" outside Wu Yingyuan Gate is also a good place for visitors to appreciate Zhuge Liang's magic tricks. "Nine Palaces Eight Diagrams" evolved from "Eight Diagrams" set up by Zhuge Liang in the "Fire Company" of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It covers an area of 2600 square meters and is composed of 13,000 wooden stakes with a diameter of 5 cm instead of stones. If visitors go deep into the array, they are like walking into a maze and puzzling, but they do not realize that "Eight Diagrams" can not come out of "Birth Gate". Zhou Yu Point General Platform, also known as Sang Point General Platform, is situated on a hillside 8.5 meters above the ground, in the shape of a military tent. Zhou Lang was full of vigour, and the dignity of deploying generals loomed.

Wu Ying pier

Through the Yuanmen to Wuying Pier, where the Zhou Yu commanding boat and more than 20 ancient warships used for filming were moored. The charred marks on the boat were still there, but the tragic situation of Cao Cao's collapse and "breaking down the sand" had become a thing of the past. After some renovation, these ancient warships regained their "residual heat" and filled with tourists sailed into the vast Taihu Lake to get a glimpse of the beautiful scenery of the lake and mountains. Tourists can also ride on high-speed speedboats and enjoy the fast-paced feeling of galloping.

Palace of Wu

On the north side of Wuying is the majestic Wu Palace. Two imperial towers stand in front of the palace gate. They are the tallest buildings in the scenic spots of the Three Kingdoms. In the Han Dynasty, they are symbols of high and low official positions. The Wu Palace built on the hill is scattered in layout and interdependent. The winding gray palace walls around it are bold and vigorous. In the main hall of double eaves, the word "joy" of Dahong stands out. This is the place where Liu Bei and Sun Shangxiang in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms married. Every day, the Three Kingdoms City Art Troupe holds a grand performance of Liu Bei's Recruitment for Kinship. The scene is grand and extraordinary, which attracts thousands of tourists, young and old.

Zhongyi Hall

In the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Zhuge Liangtong, Confucianism and Wu Kangcao's Juxian Hall are now surrounded by ancient music. The performers of Xiangfan Ancient Orchestra in Hubei Province, dressed in Han Dynasty costumes, are holding replicas of bells and chimes of Zeng Houyi, known as the "Eight Wonders of the World". A famous Chinese and foreign song makes tourists deeply intoxicated with the charm and elegance of Chinese national culture, and intersperses a platform between them. The lively music and dance of the Han Palace can also make tourists enjoy the dancing gestures of the performers of the troupe.

Rear Garden of King Wu Palace

On the left is the Shuixie, where Liu Bei and Sun Shangxiang practiced swords and martial arts. On the bottom of the rear palace is Sun Quan's conference hall, study and dining room. On the second floor, Liu Bei's bridal chamber, dressed up in red cloth balls, looks happy and solemn. Visitors can imagine the lively scene at that time from the film-pressed photo of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms on the wall.

Sweet Dew Temple

The Ganlu Temple is situated in the south of the Wu King Palace, situated in the East and West dynasties. It consists of mountain gates, Buddhist halls, Bian Buddhist halls, drum pavilions, brick pagodas and fencing stones. The brick pagoda of Ganlu Temple is obviously different from that of later generations. It is the earliest form of Buddhist Pagoda in history and developed from the concept of Han Dynasty. The Ganlu Temple is the scene of "Wu Guotai's Kinship" and "Liu Bei's Wishing to Chop Stones by Recording Power" in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Tourists can worship Buddha and burn incense here.

Burning of the Red Cliffs

The Ganlu Temple stepped down and the "Red Cliff Fire" stunt hall, where tourists can enjoy the spectacular war scenes everyday. This is the first place in China to show film and television shooting technology and introduce film and television stunts through remote control operation model. The scale of war boats, sergeants, barracks and so on in the stunt hall is reduced in proportion. It is vivid and lifelike.

Three Kingdoms Scenic Spot Show

In the meantime, tourists can also watch the rich and wonderful performances arranged according to the main plots of The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, such as Lubu, Liu Bei's Recruitment for Kinship, Red Cliff on Fire, A Tale of the Empty City, Long Banpo in the Great War, etc. Here you can fully experience the historical atmosphere of warlords'disputes and competing for deer. After visiting the magnificent historical picture scrolls of more than 1,700 years ago, visitors can also go to the beach and lakeside bathing ground to wash their body and mind, or to "Sun Shangxiang Restaurant" for a shallow drink, overlook the window and have a rest. With its unique style and charm, the scenic spots of the whole three countries have attracted tourists from home and abroad and film and television production teams to visit and shoot, which truly embodies the characteristics of the film and television culture of China Television Corporation.

General situation of Shuihucheng

Shuihucheng is adjacent to the scenic spots of the Three Kingdoms, covering 580 mu. It can be divided into three parts: prefectures and counties, Jingcheng District and Liangshan District. Prefectures and counties, including "Water Margin" in the story scenes reflecting the general outline of social life of the lower and middle class in the Northern Song Dynasty, have a strong architectural style, which not only caters to the needs of shooting, but also reproduces the historical atmosphere of the Northern Song Dynasty for people. The scenes of "Wang Po's bribery talk amorous feelings" and "Wu Song's fight against Ximen Qing" in "Water Margin" are all filmed here; the architectural momentum of Beijing urban area is magnificent and magnificent, including the imperial palace, Daxiangguo Temple, Fanlou, Gao Biao government, and so on. In "Water Margin", the plays of "Song Huizong's hearing the government in the imperial court" and "Lin Chong's private intrusion into Baihutang" are all filmed here. The Liangshan Mountains are built near the mountains and lakes, which clearly reproduces the magnificent scenes of Shuipo Liangshan. Inside Zhongyi Hall and outside the turning door, we can recall the heroic spirit of 108 heroes in that year, which makes us feel deeply.

Water Margin City Scenic Spots

The Water Margin Scenic Spot is another film and television shooting base invested by CCTV to shoot the large-scale TV series "Water Margin" after the Tangcheng Scenic Spot and the Three Kingdoms Scenic Spot. It broke ground on September 1, 1995, and started shooting in March 1996. The drama group of "Water Margin" was officially opened on March 8, 1997.
