Back to 2008 Summer Olympic Games


Bird’s Nest, officially Beijing’s National Stadium used to be the main venue of the Summer Olympics where the wonderful opening ceremony of 2008 Summer Olympic Games was held. The National Stadium looks like a huge iron nest which is ideally placed in the Olympic Green. It can accommodate 90,000 spectators, with a construction area of 260,000 square meters. Now it opens to public. You can visit first floor and fifth floor to learn about the secrets of the stadium. Highlights of the construction are showcased by photos, videos, and miniature models. Besides, other highlights of 2008 Summer Olympics are displayed as well such as the torch, instruments, and the property of opening and closing ceremonies etc. You can also view amazing landscape of the Olympic Green from the top of the stadium where a 1000-meter long corridor is established.

Now, events such as concerts, exhibitions and games are usually held in the stadium. It also will become the home to winter sport activities as the city is preparing for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
