About Seoul

Seoul is the capital of South Korea and the largest city in the country, located on the banks of the Hang River. The name of the city, approved in 1946, comes from the Korean word "Soul" - the capital.

The first mention of the city on the site of the current Seoul dates back to the 4th century. Since 370 BC the city, then called Vireson, was the capital of the state Paekche. Later the name was changed to Hanson, and then (from the XIV century) the city was renamed Khanyan. At the same time, the city was surrounded by a powerful fortress wall, in the structure of which rocky areas of the surrounding mountains successfully fit.

The development of the city steadily continued until the XVI century. In 1592–1593, it suffered considerable damage from the Japanese forces. After the expulsion of the Japanese invaders, the period of relative calm lasted only until 1597, until the Japanese again attempted to seize the Korean capital (this time unsuccessful). In 1627 and 1636, the capital was again attacked, now the Manchu troops. Soon the city underwent a series of palace coups, the period of which lasted until the XVIII century. Since the end of the XVIII century, the city entered a period of economic and cultural flourishing, which became more turbulent with the penetration of foreign capital into the territory of Korea in the XIX century. After the accession of Korea to Japanin 1910, the city was named Kenson. Japanese rule in Kenson fell after the defeat of Japanese troops in World War II.

Since 1948, the South Korean government has been housed in Seoul. During the Korean War, Seoul twice passed into the hands of the North Korean and Chinese armies, and was badly damaged in the fighting. The city was restored only at the end of the war. In the 1980s – 1990s, Seoul significantly expanded contacts with Pyongyang , the capital of North Korea , and also signed an international agreement on reconciliation and cooperation, the results of which were consolidated in 2000 during negotiations between the heads of two states.

Today's Seoul is a major economic, transport and tourist center of the country. Due to the large number of important historical sights, the city is a popular tourist destination, attracting thousands of tourists from all over the world.
