在中国首都北京的城中心,

zài zhōng guó shǒu dōu běi jīng de chéng zhōng xīn,
In the heart of Beijing, the capital of China,


有一座存在了几百年的宏伟建筑,

yǒu yí zuò cún zài le jǐ bǎi nián de hóng wěi jiàn zhù,
there is a magnificent building which has been standing for hundreds of years,

那便是故宫

nà biàn shì gù gōng
this is the Palace Museum.


故宫是中国明清两代的皇家宫殿

gù gōng shì zhōng guó míng qīng liǎng dài de huáng jiā gōng diàn

The Palace Museum is the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties in China,


他也是世界上至今存在的规模最大的宫殿型建筑。

tā yě shì shì jiè shang zhì jīn cún zài de guī mó zuì dà de gōng diàn xíng jiàn zhù 。

and it is also the largest palace-shaped building in the globe to date.


故宫南北长约960米,

gù gōng nán běi cháng yuē  960 mǐ ,

The Palace Museum covers about 960 meters from north to south,


东西宽约750米,

dōng xī kuān yuē 750mǐ ,
and 750 meters from east to west,


占地面积72万平方米

zhàn dì miàn jī 72wàn píng fāng mǐ

with a total occupation of 720,000 square meters,

令人震惊的是,他的现存房间有8000间,

lìng rén zhèn jīng de shì ,tā de xiàn cún fáng jiān yǒu 8000 duō jiān,

surprisingly, it has more than 8,000 rooms in existence,

而且大多数房间装修豪华。

ér qiě dà duō shù fáng jiān zhuāng xiū háo huá 。

and most of the rooms are in sumptuous decorations.


由于故宫是皇家宫殿,

yóu yú gù gōng shì huáng jiā gōng diàn ,
Since the Palace Museum is a royal palace,

所以里面存有大量的珍贵的文物,

suǒ yǐ lǐ miàn cún yǒu dà liàng de zhēn guì de wén wù ,
it includes a lot of precious cultural relics,


比如:书画、陶瓷器、青铜器、钟表等等。
bǐ rú :shū huà 、táo cí qì 、qīng tóng qì 、zhōng biǎo děng děng 。
such as painting and calligraphy, pottery, bronze ware, clocks and so on.

和长城一样,

hé cháng chéng yíyàng ,
Like the Great Wall,

如果你想去北京旅游,

rú guǒ nǐ xiǎng qù běi jīng lǚ yóu ,

if you want to visit Beijing,


故宫也是值得去的一个景点。
gù gōng yě shì zhí dé qù de yígè jǐng diǎn 。

the Palace Museum is also a great resort worth visiting.


所以每年有大量的人会去故宫旅游。

suǒ yǐ měi nián yǒu dà liàng de rén huì qù gù gōng lǚ yóu 。

So, there are many people who visit the Palace Museum every year.

人流量的增加自然会对文物有一定的伤害,

rén liú liàng de zēng jiā zì rán huì duì wén wù yǒu yídìng de shāng hài ,
The increase of the flow of visitors will certainly pose a certain harm to the cultural relics,


因此故宫已经采取了限制游客数量的方法,

yīn cǐ gù gōng yǐ jīng cǎi qǔ le xiàn zhì yóu kè shù liàng de fāng fǎ ,

so the Palace Museum has taken measures to limit the number of visitors,

来保护故宫文化。

lái bǎo hù gù gōng wén huà 。
to protect the culture of the Palace Museum.


1987年,故宫被列入了世界文化遗产,

1987nián ,gù gōng bèi liè rù le shì jiè wén huà yí chǎn ,
The Palace Museum was listed as the World Cultural Heritage in 1987,

不仅如此,

bù jǐn rú cǐ ,
not only that,


由于故宫巨大的文物收藏

yóu yú gù gōng jù dà de wén wù shōu cáng
due to the considerable collection of cultural relics in the Museum,


所以有了现在的“故宫学”,

suǒ yǐ yǒu le xiàn zài de “gù gōng xué ”,

“Science on the Palace Museum” therefore emerges,


专门用来研究故宫的各种文化。

zhuān mén yòng lái yán jiū gù gōng de gè zhǒng wén huà 。

for special use in the study on various cultures of the Palace Museum.


不管建筑价值,还是文化价值,

bù guǎn jiàn zhù jià zhí ,hái shì wén huà jià zhí ,

Whether it presents with architectural value or cultural value,


故宫都是人类历史上一颗璀璨的明珠。

gù gōng dōu shì rén lèi lì shǐ shàng yì kē cuǐ càn de míng zhū 。

the Palace Museum is a brilliant pearl in the human history.
