Wuyue culture (Chinese: 吳越文化) refers to the regional Chinese culture of the Wuyue people, a Han Chinese subgroup that has historically been the dominant demographic in the region of Jiangnan (entirety of the city of Shanghai and the province of Zhejiang, the southern portion of Jiangsu province and the eastern portion of Anhui province). Wuyue culture is known for its characteristics of being delicate, graceful and refined, having preserved many unique cultural traditions not existing in other regions of China.[1]
