With a 3500-year-long history, Wuhan is one of the most ancient and civilized metropolitan cities in China, more ancient than Beijing, Xi’an and Nanjing. During the Han dynasty (202 BC-220 AD), Hanyang became a fairly busy port. Under the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368) rulers, Wuchang was promoted to the status of provincial capital; by the dawn of the 18th century, Hankou had become one of China’s top four most important towns of trade. In the late 19th century, railroads were extended on a north–south axis through the city, making Wuhan an important transshipment point between rail and river traffic. More than 100 years ago, Wuchang was the birthplace of the Revolution of 1911.
Wuhan is one of the birthplaces of the brilliant ancient Chu Culture in China. Han opera, which is the local opera of Wuhan area, was one of China’s oldest and most popular operas. During the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911), Han opera, blended with Hui opera, gave birth to Peking opera, the most popular opera in modern China. Therefore, Han opera is called “mother of Peking opera” in China.
There are a wide variety of distinctive snacks with a long history in Wuhan, such as three-delicacy stuffed skin of bean milk, tangbao and hot braised noodles. Besides the snacks, Hubei cuisine ranks as one of China’s ten major styles of cooking with many representative dishes. With development of more than 2000 years, Hubei cuisine, originating in Chu Cuisine in ancient times, has developed a lot of distinctive dishes with its own characteristics, such as steamed blunt-snout bream in clear soup, preserved ham with flowering Chinese cabbage, etc.
