Hello everyeone,

Here I want to share my photos during my trip in Seoul last month. I went to the famous palace in Korea named Gyeongbokgung Palace. It’s located in Seoul downtown and I think this is the landmark of Seoul ^^

I watched the changing of the royal guard ceremonies, I felt that I went back in the past. It was very nice moment. I also got “my self tour” inside the palace area and in my opinion the architecture and the landscape of the palace are amazing.

Please everyone … enjoy my pictures. I hope you like it ^^


free guided tours for the palace in english are given at 11 am, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Tours begin outside the information office inside Heungnyemun Gate and take about an hour. Tours are also given in Japanese and Chinese – inquire at the information office for times.

Changing of the guard.

Changing of the guard ceremonies take place every hour on the hour from 10 am to 3 pm in front of Heungnyemun Gate, which is located beetween Gwanghwamun Gate and the main courtyard.
