Background

The name of Liverpool in the 11th century was Liuerpul, which means a pool or creek with muddy water. A few centuries later, it gradually became the current name Liverpool.

In 1207, the then King John announced the establishment of a new political district in Liverpool and built Liverpool Castle. In 1715, the construction of the first commercial port was completed, and maritime trade in the Atlantic Ocean expanded. Liverpool, located at the mouth of the River Mersey in England, grew rapidly. In the 19th century, the Albert Dock (Albert Dock) was opened, and the Port of Liverpool became more prosperous. At that time, as many as 40% containers were berthed here.

In 1940, the artillery fire of the Second World War ruthlessly attacked the beautiful city and dock, and Liverpool was almost completely unrecognizable. Over time, the economy slowly recovered; at this time, The Beatles was born! The whole city has been refreshed because of their music.

Liverpool has witnessed the development history of world maritime trade in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the dock was the main foreign trade port of the British Empire at that time. It has historical preservation significance. In 2004, it was certified as a marine commercial city and became a UNESCO selection World Heritage (UNESCO).

Because of its unignorable status, it was selected as a World Heritage Site (UNESCO).

Europe's first Chinatown

In the 19th century, maritime trade was developed, and Chinese merchant ships went to and from the port of Liverpool closely, and the first Chinese community in Europe was established here. The gorgeous archway we see now was built in 2000. In recent years, many descendants of immigrants have moved to the neighboring cities of London or Manchester to find new job opportunities.
