Presidential palace of Nanjing, Nanjing
(4.3/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • The Palace is pretty good, just no more to see or do if you plan to spend the whole day in this place.

  • 有人说,南京不是六朝留给我们的,也不是明朝留给我们的,而是民国留给我们的!作为民国时期的代表,总统府在中国近代史上扮演着不可或缺的角色!它和周围的梅园新村等民国建筑群共同组成了一部开放式的民国史诗馆! 这里的一砖一瓦一屋一隅都是最诚实的历史记录师。从太平天国到两江总督衙门,从洪秀全到孙中山。一代代历史更迭,一辈辈伟人倍出!难忘历史,历史难忘! 除了有些“枯燥”的历史资料馆,总统府还有美不胜收的园林...  more »
