The city with two-thousand years of history
Gyeongju, located in the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula, was the capital of the Silla Kingdom for almost a thousand years (57BC – 935AD). The entire city was designated a national park by the government because of its many historic temples, ruins, monuments and artifacts that can be found throughout the area. Most notable is that it is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Seokguram Grotta, Bulguksa Temple and the historic village of Yangdong.
