Beijing, China | International Space Station

ESA Astronaut Alexander Gerst: "A relatively clear day over Beijing. What a gigantic and impressive city. I travelled there once from Moscow by train." 🚆

Beijing, formerly romanized as Peking, is the capital of the People's Republic of China, the world's second most populous city proper, and most populous capital city. The city, located in northern China, is governed as a direct-controlled municipality under the national government with 16 urban, suburban, and rural districts. Beijing Municipality is surrounded by Hebei Province with the exception of neighboring Tianjin Municipality to the southeast; together the three divisions form the Jingjinji metropolitan region and the national capital region of China.
