Nanjing

Known as Jinling in old days, Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu. Strategically situated on the Yangtze, with a moist climate, its terrain rendered majesty by the mountains in the background, it is also the province's political, economic, cultural and transportation center. Nanjing today looks at once new and old-new due to the ongoing modernization drive, and old because it is already 2,460 years old, and, as one of the nation's seven ancient capitals, it was the capital city for 10 feudal dynasties or regimes.
