  • This park is near the city center, is surrounded by the ancient Nanjing wall and there is a big lake inside. It is very pleaseant for a walk on a sunny day, there are also some boats available to rent...  more »
  • 我每次去南京,都要到玄武湖公园去。无论是夏天还是冬天,散布在这个地方很情景。这里可以远离城市的喧嚣,消愁解闷。而且来到这个地方是很方便,可以坐地铁或公车去。 
  • I think that there is only this location near the city, beautiful lakes and parks formidable. This is a great place for various purposes, stroll along the lake or enjoy walking or jogging in the green.

  • 玄武门是最大的,最壮观。
  • 玄武湖位于江苏南京,六朝前称桑泊,曾是中国最大的皇家园林湖泊,当代仅存的江南皇家园林。玄武湖公园是江南最大的市内公园。值得一提的是,在面积上玄武湖和杭州西湖差不多,但是无论是名气、人文价值还是后来的管理,玄武湖远远逊色于杭州西湖。 民国元年辟为公园,民国初年,玄武湖一度改名五洲公园。
  • 公園面積廣大。繞湖一週可能需要2至3小時。湖北臨南京火車站,東靠白馬公園紫金山。南有明城牆包圍,西起神策門公園和平門,東至太平門,之間有玄武門及解放門。
