Imperial Citadel in Hue
The Imperial Citadel in Hue is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vietnam, and 1 of 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country. Construction on the Imperial Citadel began in 1804 at the start of the Nguyen Dynasty, which was the last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam. The capital city was moved from Hanoi to Hue in a clean break with the past to signal the creation of a newly unified country under Nguyen rule. Hue remained the capital city until 1945 when the last Emperor abdicated. During that time the Nguyen Emperors had become ‘puppet’ rulers with real power being exercised by the French colonialists.
The Imperial Citadel occupies a massive site covering approximately 10 square kilometres, all of which is surrounded by a wall and a moat. The citadel itself, however, was largely destroyed during a series of armed conflicts during the 20th Century. Most damaging of all was the Battle of Hue in 1968 during the Tet Offensive when American troops fought a combined force of North Vietnamese Army soldiers and insurgents from the Viet Cong. Fighting actually took place within the citadel and much of it was completely destroyed. An estimated 150 out of the 160 buildings which were originally in the citadel were levelled during about 2 months of fighting. Ever since the end of the Vietnam War the citadel has been slowly reconstructed and there is a lot for visitors to see now.
