Seoul is the capital and the largest city of the Republic of Korea, located on the banks of the Han River. Seoul is considered to be the "city of the future", which gives the sea of indelible impressions, strikes with its dimensions, the latest technological achievements, quaint architecture and urban landscapes that combine giant skyscrapers and ancient pagodas, multilevel transport interchanges and the peaceful greenery of parks.

The important monuments of the city's architecture include the royal palaces of Seoul, the most famous of which is the Gyeongbokgung Palace (Palace of Brilliant Happiness). It was built in 1394. During the invasion of the Japanese in 1592, it was destroyed and restored only in 1868. The territory of the palace complex of 16 hectares houses several buildings, each of which had its own purpose: a throne room, a banquet hall, private rooms of the royal family. Now the palace is a place for the Korean National and Ethnographic Museums.

In addition, the city offers a huge number of other, no less interesting, attractions.  In the historical center one can see masterpieces of ancient Korean architecture – the medieval gate, left from the city wall, once surrounded the city. These are the Great East Gate (Dongdaemun) and the Great South Gate (Namdaemun) that are considered the oldest wooden structure in Seoul and the national treasure of the country. Also, the Korean capital has preserved ancient Buddhist temple structures, for example, the Bongeunsa Temple, the Jogyesa Temple (the heart of Korean Zen Buddhism), the Jongmyo Shrine (the oldest Confucian temple in Korea). 

Seoul can never be boring. It offers a huge selection of entertainments for every taste and wallet. One of the favorite places for leisure for both Seoul residents and guests of the city is the entertainment complex Lotte World, which is the world's largest amusement park in an enclosed space. It has attractions for children and adults, restaurants and cafes, shops, the best indoor skating rink in Korea and the Folklore Museum with a fascinating exposition informing about the history of the country.
