It is the military presence that leaves the city with its most interesting features, a highly modern international hospital and a Martyr's Museum. The Bethune International Peace Hospital, which was first set up in 1937 in the Shanxi-Chahaer-Hebei military area, was moved to Shijiazhuang in 1948. Dr. Bethune himself was buried in the second feature, the Revolutionary Martyr's Museum, a park to the west of town. Of the interesting sights in the Shijiazhuang area, by far the best is the Zhaozhou Bridge, out in Zhaocheng County, which is both the oldest in China and also one of ancient China's most impressive pieces of engineering.
