Gyeongju

Gyeongju, which is in Gyeongsangbuk-do, a region in the mid-east of Korea, has important place in political and religious history of Korea.

Being the capital city of Silla Kingdom (57 BC-935 AD) for centuries, Gyeongju is described as an open museum without walls, thanks to its 300 historical and archeological sites (52 of them are in Gyeongju Special Tourist Zone). Some of these places have already been taken into UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. Gyeongju, under the cherry blossoms of the springtime, takes the visitors back just to the middle of 2000 years of history.
