Unhyeongung Palace – Seoulistic

Unhyeongung Palace


Right next to Anguk Station, Unhyeong Palace dates back to the times of young King Gojong–the last emperor of the Joseon Dynasty and founder of the Empire of Korea. While this palace may be the less frequented of the Five Grand Palaces of Seoul, the lack of large tour buses can give you the feeling that you have the place to yourself. Due to damage from Japanese colonial period, much of the palace is a reconstruction of its former self. The admission is free and you can also rent an audio guide for just 1,000 won.
