Nanjing

A storied, ancient city, Nanjing has served as the capital for myriad dynasties and Chinese regimes - hence its name, which translates to "Southern Capital." During World War II, Nanjing was the capital of the Nationalist-led Republic of China; following its fall to the Japanese army, victorious soldiers committed numerous atrocities and war crimes - sensitive issues even today for both China and Japan.

Modern-day Nanjing, however, is a peaceful, pleasant, and extremely livable city; its wide boulevards are spacious and uncrowded, and its skies are free of pollution, thanks to the large amount of green spaces located in and around the city. In addition, Nanjing hosts a considerable number of natural parks and monuments, including the scenic Xuanwu Lake, located near the center of the city, and Purple Mountain, a lovely nature preserve home to a number of historic monuments.
