The China Cultural Center in the German capital of Berlin has hosted a series of activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of ties between China and Germany.
The three-day Changzhou Culture Week, held from Feb 24-26, featured cultural elements from China's Jiangnan - the Southern reaches of the Yangtze River - including folk music, opera, and exhibitions of paintings, calligraphy and traditional Chinese handicrafts.
"The Changzhou Culture Week is part of the culture series of 'China Today - Cooperation, Friendship and Win-Win' to celebrate the 45th anniversary of China-Germany diplomatic relations," Zhang Junhui, chargé d'affaires of the Chinese Embassy in Germany, said.
"Cultural exchanges are an important part of the all-round strategic partnership between the two nations, and enhancing such exchanges will promote understanding between the two peoples and help achieve win-win cooperation."
In the coming months, more than 80 cultural activities including music, drama, dance, creative design, literature and film will be staged in both China and Germany under the China Today project, according to the Chinese Culture Ministry.
