Journey Three / Chapter 43

Seoul

June 2019

The final chapter of the South & East journey takes us to Seoul, ancient capital of Korean Kingdom turned to huge modern world-famous metropolis.

In our final chapter of the third Journey that took us through The South and The East of our Planet (or to be more precise The South and The East of the standard eurocentric mercator world map that most of us have wrongly fixed with the image of the planet) we take you to Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

Join us on our wanderings and exploration in the past of the Korean Kingdom through some of the five grand palaces of its most famous Joseon dynasty, that lasted over 5 centuries. And just outside of these palaces, sometimes through industrial streets and rapid developments, grows a huge modern world-famous metropolis that is one of the prime centres of modern art and culture.
