Unhyeongung, Seoul
(3.8/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
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. See Unhyeongung and all Seoul has to offer by arranging your trip with our Seoul travel itinerary planner.

  • But no Japanese tourists, South Korean tourists also affected atmosphere and rustic feel. One glimpse at life remains and nonchalantly, it was fresh. Was, everyone relaxed and laid-back air. It is a maze.

  • This palace is not included in the five royal palaces in Seoul. This is the home where the future king (Gojong) of Korea was born, grew up as a boy and was appointed king. This palace is more properly...  more »
  • 適合對韓國歷史文化感興趣的人前往,這裡曾是高宗的潜邸,是規模比較小的宮,約一個小時可以參觀完。 來到這是因為這裡是首爾徒步旅行北村韓屋村路線的起點,文化解說員很仔細為我們介紹一般人很少注意到的地方,例如城牆上花紋的涵義,其實跟中國建築的觀念很類似,例如:蝙蝠的圖案,代表的是福,以及無止盡的幾何圖案,代表無始無終,牆壁上還有和其它圖案融為一體的漢字,懂繁體字的才看的出來喔。

  • The original size is about 4 times than what's left of it. Originally it was a private resident. The emperor/king even promoted a pine tree he used to play to a minister rank. I was told here that many people say traditional Chinese, Japanese & Korean roods are the same but Korean roof is quite different.
  • This is one of the last palaces that was built and actually used by the Korean monarchy. As such it's less colorful than it's older counterparts and the architecture feels just a little less impressive. That being said, they rent out hanboks that you can wear around the palace and take photos in. It's a nice little way to spend an hour in one of the quieter palaces of Seoul. Insadong is also a short walk away to the east so definitely stop by a tea house or a restaurant if you get peckish.
  • It's a very interesting place to learn about South Korea's history.
  • 可以一去
