Qingzhou (Chinese: 青州; Pinyin: Qīngzhōu) is a county-level city, which is located in the west of Weifang City, Shandong Province, China. Qingzhou is a dynamic industry city, and also grows a great number of farm products.

History

Qingzhou is a timehoured city, and its name initially appeared in a geography bookmaking called "Classic of History" chapter Yu Gong (禹贡) composed in the Warring States Period(403BC - 221 BC). Nonetheless, the history of this centuries old city can date back to the ancient times (twenty two centuries ago) when it was one part of the Dongyi area.
