Although the modern look and feel of the city will pervade your initial impression of Seoul, there are a number of historical sites scattered about that are well worth checking out. By delving into the capital’s past you can gain a greater understanding of its present.
The stunning palace dates all the way back to 1395 and its beautiful architecture combined with the spectacular scenery all around make this one of the must-see places in the city.
Serene and tranquil, walking around this traditional neighbourhood is a lovely and peaceful experience. The wooden hanok buildings make for some great photos!
Bugaksan Mountain and Seoul Fortress
The mountain offers some great hiking opportunities so it’s definitely worth a visit. Up there you can find Seoul Fortress which was situated there due to its advantageous position.
