Upon arrival, the first tourism spot is Zhouzhuang's Twin Bridges which were built during the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and are considered to be the symbol of Zhouzhuang. "Memory of Hometown", which depicted the Twin Bridges, was one of the items on display and has gained the world's attention for Zhouzhuang. The painting was chosen to be the first-day cover of the United Nations' postage stamp in 1985. The bridges are said to resemble an ancient Chinese key, thus locals also refer to it as "Key Bridge".
