One of many historical sites, offering such interesting experience of Koreas history. A place of beauty and serenity, humbling an open mind. Go there!
Magnificent place. A grand garden in the middle of the city. A perfect place to walk through for people who enjoy nature and relaxing atmosphere. Wear sneakers as it promises a long journey on foot.
