Of course, we must not forget that contemporary history is very present in Seoul. This is the capital of a country that is still officially at war with its neighbour of the North, but also because the city is full of archaeological architectural sites.

Details of the stay: A weekend to see the history of Seoul and Korea - 2 days

Day 1 : The History of Seoul

During this day, you will sail over time from the most distant to the most modern to touch the story of Seoul. Start with a visit to Gyeongbokgung palace, the oldest of the Royal palaces of Seoul. From here, head to the walls of the old fortress of Seoul, which is the last trace of the medieval city. And finally, a visit to the Seoul Museum of History.

Day 2 : History of Korea

Then look at the arrival of foreigners passing through the Jeong-dong neighbourhood, in the middle of the old legations district to visit the terrible Prison prison now converted into museum. Here you will learn a lot about the Japanese occupation; knowledge that will be useful to you when you visit the Korean War Museum. Finally, visit the National museum of Korea, which tracks over 150 000 objects in the history of Korea since the Neolithic.
