is set in beautiful natural surroundings along the sourhern
banks of the yangtse River and at the foot hills of
the Zijin (Purple and Gold) Mountains. With its abundant
greencry, broad boulevards, and unharried pace, Nanjing
ranks among the most pleasant of China's great cities.
At several points in China's history, Nanjing has served
as the national capital. Today it is the capital of
and national industrial and cultural center.
In modern times, Nanjing's significance
has been enhanced by the completion in 1968 of the Yangtse
River Bridge. The bridge provides a vital link in China's
trasportation system, connecting Nanjing with Beijng,
1,157km. (719 mi.) to the north; Guangzhou, 2,127 km.
(1,322 mi.) to the south; and shanghai, 300 km. (186
mi.) to the sourheast.
Nanjing's climate is marked by intense dry
heat during the summer months-hence its designation
as one of the "three furnaces of the Yangtse."
However, few cities in China can be rated as comfortable
during the summer season and Nanjing at least has the
advantage of splendid, well-planted park areas that
can provide a modicum of relief. Throughout the remainder
of the year, the city has a temperate climate, with
a rainy season in late spring.
