This street features CPC revolutionary relics, examples of urban and rural local culture, and a display about natural attractions in the region.
Yan'an hosted the then-headquarters of the CPC and was the center of the Communist revolution from 1935 to 1948. The city is home to 445 former sites related to the CPC's early revolutionary activities, and boasts 30 revolution-themed museums.
Revolution-themed tourism has been booming in the city in recent years, with more than 800,000 people receiving "red education" in the past five years.
