Presidential palace of Nanjing, Nanjing

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Explore the impressive collections of the modern history museum in Presidential palace of Nanjing, a sprawling 600-year-old imperial residence and former seat of political power. Tour the complex, climbing the five-story tower, admiring life-size wax figures of important historical personalities, and exploring the office of the provisional president. A contrast of traditional Chinese and Western-style architecture gives a sense of the tumultuousness of China's road to modernization. Stroll past numerous gardens and carp ponds as you ponder the country's momentous history, ranging from the early Christianity-inspired Taipei Rebellion and the establishment of the Heavenly Kingdom, to the abolition of the empire. Plan to see Presidential palace of Nanjing and other attractions that appeal to you using our Nanjing trip builder.

  • Where was proclaimed from 1° the President of China, Dr Sun Yat-Sen, on 1 January 1912, the Republic of China that interrupted the saga of emperors that began with the Ming dynasty and ending the day before with the Qing dynasty. Minimalist Palace architectural style, modeled after the strictness of the Communist nomenclature, with basic rooms with basic furnishings. Very nice garden, with beautiful flowering trees and lakes and pagodas in Chinese style!

  • Very nice and impressive. If you want to see what about the history of china and can read that here. Only most of the information is written in Chinese. Small part but in English

  • Winter Tour at 16 arrived just before 5 pm closed 1 hour before ticket sales end and the edge was. Enough in times of 1 hour exhibition volumes have spectacular. President you can imagine the situation at that time was used as an Office.
