Gyeongju, South Korea


The City of Gyeongju has an important and rich history. For centuries, the city served as the capital of the Silla Dynasty (57-935 BC), the longest period of reign 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 designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage (known collectively as the "Gyeongju Historic Area") and the city is commonly known as the "museum without walls" thanks to the many artifacts found throughout the city.
