Besides, Jinan is also an important collecting and distributing center for all kinds of goods in Shandong.
Jinan was one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization. Cultural relics representing the Shun Culture and the Xihe Culture (7,300-8,400 years ago), especially pottery, have been discovered in the city. While carrying forward the old cultural traditions, Jinan's modern culture is developing vigorously. At present, there are 16 specialized art performance troupes and over 100 folk art organizations, which perform luju and liuzi operas, acrobatics, quyi (folk art forms including ballad singing, story telling, comic dialogues, etc.), yangge drum dancing and other traditional performances with strong local flavors.
Jinan is known as "City of Spring". Underground streams from Mount Tai flow along the limestones strata to Jinan, where they are halted by igneous rocks and spurt out in the form of numerous springs. Of the 72 famous springs here, the Baotu, Pearl, Black Tiger and Fiver-Dragon Pond springs are the best known. Other famous tourist attractions include the Daming Lake Park, Thousand Buddha Hill, Shandong Provincial Museum and so on.
