The Most Incredible Archaeological Find - Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang

Terracotta Army is one of the most ambitious and important archaeological finds of the last century, which is about eight thousand statues of Chinese warriors with horses made in full size. In 1974, nearly 2,200 years after the burial, the statues were found by Chinese farmers near the city of Xi'an.

The Terracotta Army is unique in that each warrior was made individually and has its own unique appearance. In addition to statues of officers, archaeologists found ordinary soldiers in uniform: with crossbows, swords, and spears. This incredible finding, being a part of the “tomb of the first Qin Dynasty”, has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Terracotta Army was visited the most high-ranking visitors, among whom were the presidents of the US and British monarchs, and the Russian president. The most convenient way for the tourist to get to the exposure is to go to Xi'an railway station, from which transport is regularly organized. The entrance ticket is 110 yuan, work schedule: from 8:30 to 16:30 in winter and up to 17.00 - in summer.
