Explore Korea’s Ancient Capital

The City of Gyeongju is located in southeast Korea and has an important and rich history. For centuries, the city served as the capital for the Silla Dynasty (57-935 BC), the longest-reigning Dynasty in the history of Korea. Even today, you’ll find ancient landmarks blanketing the city, standing as proud testaments to a bygone era. These ancient relics are such an integral part of the landscape that the whole city has been included on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list (known collectively as the “Gyeongju Historic Areas”). The City of Gyeongju is commonly known as a “museum without walls” thanks to its many artefacts.
