  • 为了书院去爬山,然而下山到了快山脚才到书院。脑补了曾经书院中学子读书的画面参观了一圈,藏书阁现作为湖南师大的地外人是不能随意进去的  more »
  • 书院非常的大,在岳麓山的南门。里面的布局设计很巧妙,充满文人气息,还有鸟鸣声。在这里读书真的是种享受。走在里面可能会迷路,因为太大了,又很迂回曲折。  more »
  • 登爬岳麓山途经岳麓书院,书院环境清幽,风景宜人,是个修身养性静心学习的好地方。据说现在湖南大学招收的学生在此授课~~  more »

  • Great place to visit. very touch with the story. you definitely need a guide to explain during the visit
  • 千年学府 风景优美
  • That's the best place to be!
  • 湖南大学内,环境清幽,经常举办各种讲座,有学术类的,也有生活类的。书院有很多古籍和古迹。岳麓书院的景致,层叠有致,没有江南园林那么精致近乎细碎,这里透着多一分的大气和沉淀。
  • 千年学府,在湖南大学内,后面就是岳麓山,风景秀丽,书院建筑十分精美
