Seoul for soul. Part 2. Gyeongbokgung

Hello~! ^^
Or, should I say, 안녕하세요~!!
Today, in the 2nd part of "Seoul to soul" series, I am going to show you beautiful and breathtaking Gyeongbokgung. This palace was the second place i have seen in Seoul after Insa-dong (click, if you want to see the famous street!). ~kkk I was so impressed with great and mighty buildings! And of course I can`t forget an amazing park and pond with fish in the palace area. ^-^
What is Gyeongbokgung?
Gyeongbokgung (경복궁), also known as Gyeongbokgung Palace or Gyeongbok Palace - is a royal palace located in northern Seoul, South Korea. First constructed in 1395, later burned and abandoned for almost three centuries, and then reconstructed in 1867, it was the main and largest palace of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. The name means "Palace" [Gung  궁] "Greatly Blessed by Heaven" [Gyeongbok  경복]. (c)wikipedia

These is just some photos of the Gyeongbokgung, I have made. But it is enough to see the true beauty of the palace~! ^-^
