The history of Zhuzhou can be traced back to ancient times and spans thousands of years. Dating back thousands of years, Zhuzhou has been the foundation of numerous ancient civilizations. The ancestor of the Chinese nation, Emperor Yan Shennong, established a magnificent farming civilization on this land.

The city of Zhuzhou is known as "the city pulled by the train" because, at the start of the 20th century, it was an inland city with an underdeveloped economic base. However, with the construction and development of railways, Zhuzhou has gradually become an important transportation hub. The Beijing-Guangzhou Railway and the Shanghai-Kunming Railway intersect in Zhuzhou, making it a transportation hub that connects the north and south and spans from east to west. The construction of the railway not only brought a large number of people and goods, but also stimulated the development of Zhuzhou's industry.

The construction of railways also brought about a large number of employment opportunities and increased population mobility. Many individuals have secured employment in railway construction and operation, and a significant number of them have opted to establish their residence in Zhuzhou due to the railway's convenience.


Zhuzhou City is in the eastern part of Hunan Province, along the lower reaches of the Xiangjiang River. It shares borders with Pingxiang (萍乡) City, Lianhua (莲花) County, Yongxin (永新) County, and Jinggangshan (井冈山) City in Jiangxi Province to the east. To the south, it is bordered by Hengyang and Chenzhou cities. Xiangtan City is located to the west, and Changsha City is situated to the north. The average journey to these cities only takes about an hour, so many tourists choose to stay in Zhuzhou to explore the surrounding cities and enjoy "one-day trips" and "two days and one night" excursions.


Zhuzhou City belongs to the mid-subtropical monsoon climate zone. It has a mild climate with four distinct seasons. The spring temperatures are changeable, summers are hotter, autumn air is crisp, and winters are less severe cold. The region experiences abundant heat, rainfall, and droughts that are more severe than floods.
