朋友你好!

I go this awesome card today! Thank you very much Leanna!

This card shows the Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.
Leanna tells me, this harbour was named after the english Queen Victoria.
I love how the city looks. When I was little and we were going by car on a long trip I always enjoyed how the cities looked at night, with all the wonderful lights.
I think it is great how the lights reflect on the water ♥

Shanghai Concert Hall  is located on the intersection of Yan’an Rd and South Tibet Rd of Huangpu District, Shanghai. It was founded in 1930, originally named Nanjing Drama Hall. In 1949, it adopted the name Beijing Cinema. In 1959, it was named Shanghai Concert Hall till today.

The hall can accommodate 1,122 seats, 640 on the ground floor and 482 on the second floor. The stage is 8.35 metres by 16 metres, covering around 100 sq. metres.

The Concert Hall was designed by a Chinese architect Fan Wen-jiao, but it adopted traditional European style.

In order to make way for Highway on Yan’an Rd, the hall was relocated in 2007. The project embarked at 10 am on April 15, and cost 50 million RMB. The 5800 kiloton concert hall was first lifted 1.7 meters, moved east 66.4 meters, and finally lifted with another 1.7 metres at the new site, using Enerpac hydraulic cylinders. The project concluded on January 1, 2008. The Shanghai Concert Hall reopened on September 26, 2008.
