During the process of urban development, various city features and cultural phenomenon came into being as a result of geographical environment, climate conditions and natural resources. This kind of cultural phenomenon is the unique charm of a city, and is also an important distinguishing itself from other cities. Cultural accumulation and background formed in the historical development of every city is not only the embodiment of the city in the past glorious history, but also the inevitable result of economic progress. Through cultural development of a city, we can draw the conclusion that cultural heritage and economic development is inseparable.
