a festival featuring tens of millions of roses is taking place at Rose Garden inside Seoul Zoo of Seoul Grand Park from May 28th to June 30th. The roses that represent 293 different species include the brilliant pink Maria Callas and the strong-scented red ‘toupt bolket.’ Also, a large flower pagoda, flower sculptures and the garden fountain all provide romantic memories for families and lovers alike. Moreover, the ‘World Dance Festival’ program featuring dance teams from France, Spain, Brazil and other countries will surely add excitement to the festival. Visitors can even learn some of the world dance routines through the program.
