About Gyeongju

Verdant and beautiful but with pockets of urban excitement, Gyeongju is a fascinating city that should feature on every Korean itinerary. Once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla, Gyeongju is rich with cultural and historical attractions, including rock carvings, temples and pagodas as well as a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Its Silla heritage stretches back over 1000 years, with ancient sites, relics and ruins found throughout the city. The Gyeongju National Museum is home to countless treasures as well as the 23 ton Emille Bell cast in 771 AD.
