(ECNS) -- Two Chinese cities – Nanjing and Yangzhou – were named among the list of 66 urban settlements to join UNESCO's Network of Creative Cities last Wednesday.

Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, is included as a creative city in the literature category.

With a history dating back 2,500 years, the city is home to one world cultural heritage site and four world intangible cultural heritage items.

Nanjing has been recognized as a city of poetry and a hub of literature as it boasts 100 cultural centers and over 300 book stores.

Yangzhou, a prefecture-level city from the same province, is named in the gastronomy category.

Yangzhou sits on the north bank of Yangtze River and is a major hub of Huaiyang cuisine.

Huaiyang cuisine is derived from the native cooking styles of the region surrounding the lower reaches of the Huai and Yangtze rivers.
