  • Wow. Just loved this visit. Very well manicured cemetery and green space, with just the right amount of context and history to make for a very meaningful visit. We were very “weepy” during this one…very touched by the somberness of the memorials and the inspiring sacrifice of so many from so many countries by a then fledgling United Nations for South Korea. MUST see when in Busan!
  • Surprisingly small to me. I have visited Arlington and the cemetery at Omaha beach. This is no where near the size of those locations. But it is a well laid out very attractive and solemn cemetery. Different areas commemorate fallen heroes from the various countries the supported the UN action in Korea. Also a small center with some very basic information about the Korean War. I'm glad I visited here. Within very short walking distance is the Busan museum, another place worth your time for some insight into Korean history.
