Located in the southwest of the United Kingdom, Bath is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the country. It is also the only city in the UK with natural hot springs.
The city has a long history and is famous for the Roman Baths, which were built by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. Bath is also home to some of the most elegant streets and buildings in the UK.
Roman remains, Georgian buildings, and Neo-classical-style buildings still exist in the city harmoniously, which makes Batch both a classic and modern city.
In addition, Bath has rich cultural and artistic resources that attract literary and art lovers from all over the world.
British author Jane Austen, who wrote Pride and Prejudice and Emma, was fond of the city. Her memorial hall is located in central Bath.
As the only city in the UK with natural hot springs, Bath is similar to Jinan, "the city of springs".
Two cities established friendly relations in 2017 and have carried out exchanges and communication related to the protection of natural hot springs, hot spring culture, and hot spring-related tourism development.
In addition, Jinan is developing the International Sister City Garden project for Bath. It is anticipated that it will provide Jinan residents an immersive experience of Bath.
