"The Silk Road" is a special term which describes the trade route between the Central Asia and China. In ancient times, Chinese people transported silk, tea and other products to exchange for horses with small kingdoms in west of China. The famous explorer Marco Polo opened this trade route to the Middle East, Western Europe and North Africa. Over time the Silk Road became one of the most important trade route linking China and Europe. The route is no longer used for international trade but much history and many stories of the happenings on the Silk Road remain. >> more about the history of the Silk Road!
