The National Stadium will host the Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, as well as athletics and football competitions. After the Olympic Games, the stadium will become a center for sports, cultural and creative activities,. Its post-Games use is currently undergoing extensive planning.
The illuminating facilities were put into operation inside the National Stadium, nicknamed the "Bird's Nest," on the night of February 4, 2008.
The red lights and grey steel structures of the project make up a splendid addition to the capital city's nightscape.
With the last 2,000 lamps scheduled to be adjusted on February 5, citizens can enjoy the magnificent night view on the eve of and during the Spring Festival holiday.
