About Gyeongju

In particular, Bulguksa Temple, Seokguram Grotto, Gyeongju Historic Areas, and Yangdong Village are UNESCO-designated world heritage sites where you can experience the very best of Korean beauty by exquisitely harmonizing artistry, science and technology, and the Korean spirit.

Meanwhile, with the construction of a historical and cultural city hub and the promotion of three national projects, Gyeongju is developing into a high-tech science city that opens up the future as well showcases its status as a historical and cultural tourism city.
