In the central part of Vietnam lies the city of Denang, one of the countrys largest population centers, on the South China Sea coast. It has a sea port, an international railway station, a railway station, and an international air port. One of its administrative buildings houses the office of the Russian Consulate.

The territory of the present city, according to archaeological research, began to be inhabited since the 2nd century. In 192, immigrants from Inenupea established a settlement called Inlandrupura, which subsequently became part of the Kingdom of Champe. During the period of the French colonization, the city was called Turin. In 1535, the first European settlers arrived in Danang Cove. The year the city was founded is 1858. Its first buildings were laid next to the Khan River. The original purpose of the new city was to move the sea port from Hoyang because of its small capacity and the flooding of the Tubon River. During the period of colonization of Indochina from 1874 to 1949, the French settled in Denânung.

Modern Denanang was part of one of the Vietnamese provinces, Kungnam-Denan, until 1997, when it became the city of central Vietnam. The priority places for Dhananháng are surpassed only by Hánání and Hoshimín. A typical sector of the economy is the textile industry. Its main fields of activity are textile fibers and silk. ×Some of the townspeople are employed in the food and machinery industries. Todays Danang is attracted by its beaches. Thats why there are so many tourists in the city all year long.

In contrast to the North Vietnamese region, the climate is characterized by two seasons – wet and dry. From February through August, hot temperatures can reach 29 degrees Fahrenheit in Denango and south of there. Generous rainfall will occur from September through December. The area where the city is located has an ancient culture of chums. The My Lady Shona Sanctuary and a number of other monuments from bygone eras are testament to this.
