  • 位于南京市中心。坐地铁在一号线玄武门下。入口就是南京的古城墙玄武门。玄武湖很大。绕湖一周要几个小时。湖中间还有樱花洲。风景都很漂亮。值得一去。小情侣们围着湖走走。说说情话。羡煞我们单身 
  • 工作缘由,要去一个地方,于是选择穿过玄武湖,从解放门进,秋日里,空气爽朗,蓝天映照着湖面,对应着城墙和远方的紫金山,显得格外美丽,阳光和煦的照在草地上,一切静谧而美好。 
  • Beautiful place for a evening walk. Not so much else to do around this part of town, but if you have a bit of free time and a good book to read then it's worth coming here.
