XuanWu Park is a park that mixes the blue color of the water and the green color of plants. This park gives a great view on the city of Nanjing and it's a cool place for photomaniacs.

The title tells everything. See it to see it. Have a tranquil walk around the area in a drizzling and chilly day in the summer. It will offer you its definite beauty.
