Being the host of an Olympic Game can change the image of a city forever. The games last for only a month but the preparations begin many years before and the legacy lasts many years to come. In order to host the Olympic Games of 2008 Beijing underwent major changes and tore down old neighborhoods and replaced them with brand new buildings.
Huge arenas, new landmarks, which will always be connected to the Games, were built. For many host cities these sorts of changes leave a permanent impression on how the city is perceived. However, compared to other host cities, the Olympic impact has not been as great as expected in Beijing, mainly due to the strong historical profile of the city.
