Summer Palaces & University Area

This section includes the descriptions and details of four areas: the Summer Palace, the Old Summer Palace, Tsinghua University and Peking University.

With the preserved architecture of a fading China, stunning artwork, a scattering of ancient temples, quaint bridges and lovely pavilions dotting a splendid lake, the Summer Palace is one of Beijing’s most impressive attractions. Just to the northeast, the ruins of the Old Summer Palace once held a glorious melange of Eastern and Western architecture, but today the ruins attest to the sad breakdown of 19th century Sino-European relations and offer a haunting glimpse of history.
