PhotoStory 0006: Gyeongbok-gung Palace in Seoul, South Korea


Photos taken 2007-01-08, (Jan. 8th) at the Gyeongbok-gung Palace in Seoul, South Korea

The name of the palace, Gyeongbokgung, translates in English as "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven."

Wikipedias article about this palace will be more detailed than my decribtion.



I'll posted a row of photos from outside, guards changes, inside, some details and from the Korean Folk Museum just on the outskirt.

Its a long time since I was there now - and to be frank I dont remember that much details - and I was walking around here with no guiding or knowlege before I went there, - but still it was a very plessent trip and experience - even it was freecing cold :-)
