Top 3 travel tips

1st Royal Residence

In Seoul, the five palaces of the Joseon Dynasty are considered to be the most important sights of the city. They provide an interesting insight into the 500-year regency. The Changdeokgung, also called palace of the shining virtue, belongs to the UNESCO world cultural heritage and was once residence of the royal family. The palace complex is open to the public. The magnificent living rooms and the garden can be visited.

2. Colourful shopping mile

The Meyeongdong means "bright tunnel" and is a magnificently illuminated shopping street and the tourist centre of the metropolis. The street combines department stores with elaborately designed monuments. In addition to markets and shops, the Meyeongdong Nanta Theatre and Meyeongdong Cathedral are also located here. Twice a year the colourful Meyeongdong Festival takes place, which inspires with concerts, parades and dances.

3. Impressive museum complex

The Korean National Museum is a fascinating three-storey building that illuminates the country's past and future. The outdoor area resembles a paradisiacal park with waterfalls and native plants. After the end of the empire, the museum opened and today houses treasures of the Palaeolithic period, thematizes the political development of the country and presents historical legacies of the Joseon dynasty. Among the most valuable artifacts are the Silla gold crown from the 5th century, the bronze statue of the thoughtful Bodhisattva and an incense burner made of Seladon ceramics.
