Vietnam history
Vietnam is a nation with thousand years of a glorious history. Archaeological artefacts of the Phung Nguyen, Dong Dau, Go Mun, and Dong Son cultures, especially the Ngoc Lu bronze drums have proved the Vietnam sheltered a developed civilisation even before Christ (Dong Son culture). Besides, the vestiges of the historic period of the Hung Kings have revealed that Vietnam was one of the first countries to be formed.

History of Vietnam can be divided into three main periods:

  • Northern Kingdom's domination (208 BC - 939 AD): The period was lasting 1,000 years and was on of the fiercest period of hardship experienced by the different tribal people in Vietnam's history.

  • National construction and defense for independence (939 - 1945): The period was brilliant era of national revival and development. It was marked by the glorious victory of the Vietnamese people against the aggressors.

  • National independence and socialism (1945 until present): The revolution succeeded in August 1945 with the leadership of the President Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese Communist Party. The country proclaimed its independence on September 2, a date that later became Vietnam's National Day. During the following 30 years, the Vietnamese people continued to resist and protect their independence. Vietnam has been unified since the great victory over the Americans in spring 1975. The Socialist Republic of Vietnam was proclaimed, with Hanoi as its capital.
