Dalian is a relatively new city in China, with about 150 years of history.
At the turn of the 19th century, the city was the seat of the Japanese occupational government, after defeating the Russians in the Russo Japanese war.
The Japanese built a number of administration buidings and infrastrcuture in Daiian, much of which still stands today. The majority of the buildiings are clustered around Zhanshan Square in central Dalian. Dalian City Hall and neighboring buildings were also originally built by the Japanese and can be viewed when passing through People's square to and from the airport.
