One of the national landmarks of the city, the Gyeongbokgung Palace is a very old building , home of the royal families of Korea.

The whole palace was built in traditional Asian style with beautiful terraces and roofs, walls. And though the palace in itself is an attraction, the National Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum is a place to visit, once you've gone to the royal home. Many things can you learn from the museum's exhibits, not just bathe in the beauty of the royal quarters and the gardens. :)

Sejongno, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
