Baekje Unesco Heritage Tour

13:10 ~ 14:30Gongsanseong Fortress

This was a royal palace of the Baekje Kingdom, and Geumseoro (West Gate) is one of the finest fortress walls that can be seen in Korea. When you walk along the fortress, you will be able to take in a full view of the city of Gongju


14:40 ~ 15:20 Royal Tomb of King Muryeong

The Tomb of King Muryeong, also known as Songsan-ri Tomb No. 7, is the ancient tumulus of King Muryeong, who ruled the Baekje from 501 to 523, and his queen. The rarity of intact Baekje tombs makes this one of the major archaeological discoveries in Korea and a crucial source for the understanding of Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.


15:30 ~ 16:30 Gongju National Museum

As a local museum, Gongju National Museum is dedicated to preserving, studying, and celebrating the extensive history and culture of its region, at the center of Chungcheongnam-do Province. Gongju is the present-day location of the former city of Ungjin, which was the capital of the Baekje Kingdom from 475 to 538 CE, so the museum has a specialized focus on the remarkable culture of the Ungjin Baekje period.


16:40 ~ 17:20 Gongju Traditional Korean Village

It was built between Munyeong King’s Tomb and National Gongju Museum on a land of 31,310m2, where there are group accommodation (6 buildings with 37 rooms), individual accommodation (13 buildings with 23 rooms), additional facilities (4 auto campings, 9 outdoor kitchens, and 1 multi-purpose room), and shopping center.
