Old and new Hue

TTH.VN - “Hue is ancient, yet always new and surprising. Anyone who has ever spent an entire misty morning or a cool sunset walking along the two banks of the Huong River will feel the magical vitality of Hue today... Hue is developing day by day, gradually worthy a city of heritage, a future center of specialized culture, education, tourism and healthcare of the country and the region” - These are the deep feelings of a distant friend about a Hue that is "forever beautiful and poetic".

In the spirit of celebrating the 49th anniversary of Thua Thien Hue's liberation day  (March 26, 1975 - March 26, 2024), Thua Thien Hue Weekly would like to introduce to readers pairs of photos capturing the continuous changes of Hue City. The photos were selected and shared by Nguyen Phong from a collection of documentary photos, which he had collected and digitized. Although it cannot convey as much as we would like, we hope that these photos will spread to readers the image of an ancient Hue, which is beautiful, rich in cultural depth and always moving forward.

Hue and Yellow Apricot

Each person and family reminisce about old times when apricot color shone in front of the Citadel. The Yellow Apricot - Hoang Mai flower is a symbol of spring, family reunion, harmony between heaven and earth, and the nation.
