Create an itinerary including Presidential palace of Nanjing
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. Planning Nanjing trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
