Unhyeongung, Seoul

3.9
At Unhyeongung, explore the former residence of Prince Regent Daewon-gun, and learn how the Korean royalty once lived. Dating back to the 14th century, the site has grown and diminished over the years; today, a women's university occupies its grounds. You can explore the palace's historical female and male living quarters, as well as the event hall and kitchen. The last royal wedding ceremony was held here, and is faithfully reenacted twice a year to this day. Arrange to visit Unhyeongung and other attractions in Seoul using our Seoul road trip planner.

  • Unhyeongung Palace late Joseon Dynasty, brought a tremendous impact as a reformist politician spent his childhood up to the private residence of XING Xuan daewongun, the son no. 26 King, Gojong throne located. Inside the building is a simple look is preserved and living style of the upper classes in the same era as obsolete. Why break my uncle. Also, I saw uncle that wipe the flute. Admission is free, so relax people.

  • Adjacent to the house of Goblin (tv novela). Since I was unable to take pictures of the school facade, I opted to see the palace instead. Very nice and not crowded as the other palaces.
  • 운현궁을 꼭 한 번 방문해보세요 Unhyungong palace will give you a special experience. The palace in Seoul is a good place for recreation. Seoul is often stuffy and boring, but you'll feel much better if you visit the palace. When you come to Seoul, you should visit Deoksugung Palace, Unhyungong palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace, and Changdeok Palace. These palaces will add something special to your memory.
  • Old beautiful royal residence for the residence of the Heungseon Daewongun, a prince regent of Korea during the Joseon Dynasty in the 19th century, and father of Emperor Gojong. Don't forget to step in if you pass by. It is free admission.
  • Another good example of well preserved culture artifacts.
  • a small palace behind insadong. where there are displayed room of their lives. when i was there the entrance was free. but if you rent or have a hanbok you have a free pass for all the palaces.
