Chang’an Street is a major thoroughfare to the north of Tiananmen Square in central Beijing. It stretches from West Chang'an Street to East Chang'an Street (although some refer to it as the entire route from the Shijingshan district through to Tongzhou district).
This huge, wide street is possibly the most famous in China, with many of Beijing’s most significant historical attractions located along it. The Great Hall of the People and Zhongnanhai, as well as central government buildings, are located around Chang’an Street, while the National Museum of China, National Center for the Performing Arts, and the Beijing Concert Hall are also close by.
Chang’an Street is centrally located and easily accessible, with subway and railway stations nearby. Line 1 of the Beijing Subway runs right beneath Chang’an Street, and there are also bus routes serving the roads that surround it.
