    A strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma(QGP) has been created in heavy-ion collisions and its space-time evolution is well described by relativistic hydrodynamics. In this talk, I will present two recent progresses on exploring the properties of QGP with realistic hydrodynamic evolution of heavy-ion collisions. In the first part of talk, I will review the effects of chiral anomaly on hydrodynamics and explain the implementation of such effects into hydrodynamic evolution of QGP. As an application, I will discuss the footprints of chiral anomaly on charge-dependent pion spectrum as observed in experiment. In the second part of this talk, I will present the extraction of electrical conductivity of QGP, for the first time in literature, from photon production data.
