Tianjin, meaning ‘the place where the emperor crossed the river´, is one of the four municipalities in China. It’s a densely populated city with a current population of more than 13.5 million people and bears a wonderful historical background.

China’s first institution of higher learning was set up in Tianjin with the municipality being one of the most important scientific and educational bases of the country.
