With over 600 years of history as a city, Tianjin was once home to eight military forces, including France, Britain, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, Japan, Italy and Belgium.
Each of these nations left their mark on the city and today, Tianjin is famous for the architecture of châteaux and grand villas left behind by the foreign powers. These buildings are protected heritage sites and are generally well-preserved.
