Kyongju (Gyeongju) lies on the SE coast of South Korea facing the Sea of Japan. Kyongju was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD), which ruled about two-thirds of the Korean Peninsula at its height between the 7th and 9th centuries, for close to one thousand years. Kyongju is the main destination in South Korea for visitors interested in the cultural heritage of Silla and the architecture of the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910). The city remains an important centre of Korean Buddhism. While tourism is important economically, Kyongju is also key to manufacturing, fishing and agriculture industries.

The Kyongju region has become Korea’s most popular tourist attraction outside of Seoul. Here one learns of Korea’s “golden age”, once noted by UNESCO as “one of the world’s 10 most important historical sites.” Royal tombs, temple sites with weathered stone pagodas, and fortress ruins form “an outdoor museum without walls.” Indeed, in the 8th C Kyongju City was the fourth largest city in the world. Don’t miss the National Museum, and the massive bell that can be heard 164 km away. Also, visit the Tomb Park area, dating to the 1st C. Artifacts include gold crowns, jewelry and ceramics

If time permits, drive two hours to Tolham Mountain to see Korea’s masterpiece of Buddhist sculpture. Indeed, throughout this region masterpieces of architecture (including an astronomical observatory) and manufacture abound, created by lost and unknown skills. For a one-day visit, try the National Museum, Tomb Park, Ch’onsong-dae and Kyerim, Anap-Ji, and the Punhwang-sa Pagoda. A ten-minute drive outside the city leads to Posok-jong and the tomb of Kim Yu-shin. Pulguk Temple is a treasure enclosing treasures. See the Shilla pottery kilns at the showroom of You Hyo-ung.
