Gyeongbokgung Palace

The National Palace of Korea.

The Palace was named Gyeongbokgung Palace, which means the “Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven”. It was build in 1395 and served as main palace during the Joseon Dynasty. Today the mountain Bugaksan is to its rear and the city business district in front of it, placing it in the heart of Seoul.

We waited at The National Palace Museum for the rain to stop, but it never did, so we saw the grand palace area from under an umbrella, nevertheless it was still very interesting and beautiful.

One thought on “Gyeongbokgung Palace

  1. Spændende med de store nye bygninger, så tæt på de gamle. Regnen skaber bløde grå nuancer. Og – så er i der alle fire – dejlig at se.
