  The main street in Zhoucun Ancient Commercial City is known as Zhoucun Avenue. It is the biggest and oldest business street in Zhoucun, which together with the silk street, silver street and some other streets makes up the core part of Zhoucun Ancient Commercial City. In 2015, Zhoucun Avenue was appointed as one of the 24 pilots of Shandong provincial “rural memory” project.

  The avenue first set up in the Ming Dynasty, still maintains the original style with grey bricks and red walls and cloth market, silver street, pawn shops, drug stores, tea houses, dye houses, inns and antiques stand along the street.

  Today, Zhoucun Avenue enjoys widespread renown. It is a national ancient historical and cultural street, the birthplace of Lushang Culture and famous shooting base for film and television. However, in the 1990s, many of the stores on the street were demolished because of the urban construction and development. The avenue also faced the same fate as the stores. It was Zhang Yimou, who came here to shoot a movie, that saved the avenue.
